I was desiring something to put all my cordless drills and palm sanders in for travel.
And then it dawned on me…
In my little red tray post, I had this grey box. With leftover paint, the box got hit with a little new colour.
I didn’t know what to do with the box at first, but once I started packing for Crafty Affaire market, that all changed.
I had the perfect branch in the garage just waiting to be placed as a handle for a new toolbox!
First I screwed through the branch into the box, but knew quickly a little more insurance for such a heavy load could be a good thing. So two metal brackets later, it was done!
Wearing some old house numbers on one side, and a green 1968 Alberta license plate on the other, it was ready to go show hoppin’!
And the best part of all? The box got a compliment from a builder at the show!
My little cheater branch and box toolbox was a cheater way to build a toolbox… but, why not?
