Toolboxes are fun to play with! They look cool and are completely versatile, not to mention, totally easy to build. Here are a few highlights to getcha addicted to them like I am…
Toolbox planter with drawers – Homeroad
Layers of flowers take advantage of empty drawers in this fab toolbox find.
Branch handled toobox – Creative Passage
Nature takes over with a branch handle for this rustic toolbox.
Picket fence styled toobox with rake handle – Four Corners Design
The rake handle chimes in so well with the picket style sides on this toolbox!
Drill handled toolboxes – Freddy and Petunia
These rustic toolboxes shine with the addition of a drill handle. Love how the wood is treated.

My own drill handled toolbox is currently used beside my phone holding pens and pencils beside the phone. But it sure looked pretty with freshly cut lilacs!
The one board picket fence toolbox build – Funky Junk Interiors
One picket found on the side of the road turned into a cute little toolbox holding cut flowers fresh from the garden.
I’ve also curated a fab collection of toolboxes right in Hometalk!

Thanks for hosting, Donna! Great theme tonight. Love the tool box with the planted drawers.
Great collection Donna and thanks again for the kit to make the tool box that I now cart my homemade citronella candles around in. The kit also had a few branches in it…I saved those and used them in another project. I can’t wait to share it with you! As soon as i get my photos done I’ll share. xoxo
Donna – thanks for including my rake-handled tool box in your line-up -such an honor! I’ve been doing a little re-arranging outside in my garden area – I’ll have to get it finished this weekend – and include my tool box and show off my new look! thanks for the motivation…
Thanks so much for hosting! Hope you’re having a great weekend!
I love the toolbox Party…yayyyyy..great idea
Thanks for sharing all these wonderful tool box ideas…my hubs is planning on making some for my business.
Yah Donna. Funky Tool Boxes. Great party, love joining in.
Would you believe that I came to link up and got side tracked by that super cute tool box with the little rake handle and totally forgot to link up my projects?? I’m in between painting…must be the fumes ha ha! Hope you have a great weekend! 🙂
Thank you for hosting Donna! I have an old red metal toolbox that I picked up at a garage sale for my youngest son’s room and I plan to use it – open – to display his books on his shelf. Just haven’t gotten there yet!! Have a great weekend:)
Thanks for hosting Donna!! Have a lovely weekend!
Thanks so much for hosting! Have a great weekend.
Thanks so much for the feature Donna!!! I have to admit, every time I create a toolbox, I think of you. You gave me the inspiration to make one myself… way back when I was just decorating them. I made my first with power tools on your advice and I’ve never looked back! Thanks for all your inspiration and advice over the years!
Thanks so much for the party! Have a GREAT weekend!!
Thanks for showing my tool box and tutorial again. You know I love them like you do but I just can’t seem to sell one at the Farmers Market I go to!
Thanks so much for hosting!! Have a great weekend!!
