Tiled Tote

6:33 PM

A simple reclaimed wooden box got a little
less simple with the use of white ceramic tiles and a handle...

I found a box of beautiful ceramic tiles at a garage sale for only a few dollars... 
Not enough to tile the bathroom but enough for little projects.

I began by building the box with reclaimed fence wood...
I added a strong, old basket handle and gave the whole crate a coat of white wash.

I used a heavy coat of E6000 to adhere my tiles to the front and back of the box using clamps to secure the glue until it dried. 

A bull-nose tile was added to the top of each end to finish it off.

 The tiles on both sides of the crate are identical...

A pretty tote for carrying flowers or to 
just fill with a plant for decoration.

I'm using it in my kitchen for 
fresh vegetables...

  2. So cute way to make a little box all fancy! You are an awesome idea a minute, girl! BTW - yes, I can't find my window treatments. I think the movers just labeled everything Christmas decor and called it good - makes me crazy!

  3. How pretty, Susan! I could even see this in a bathroom holding hand towels or decorative soaps; maybe lotions. Such a great little tote!

  4. Thank you for making totes to pin to my tote board!
