Craft Toolbox

The sides of this box are created from old fence boards and the bottom from an old broken wine crate. 



The center piece is an old board that I cut
 a hole in for a handle. 

To do that I first determined where I wanted the handle. I drilled two 1" holes and used a jigsaw to cut between the drilled holes. 
This gave me the handle slot.


I painted the box a mustard yellow.

I used the paintbrush images from the
Graphics Fairy...
printed on a laser printer. I used Modge Podge to transfer the pictures to the wood.


I love these "Do not touch" 
cards from Carolyn @ Homework!

When the paper dried I rubbed it off 
and the image stayed behind...it's magic!



I made this toolbox for all the craft supplies I have that are spread out all over my kitchen.


It will be nice to have everything 
all in one place.


The compartments are perfect for jars.


And the handle is perfect for moving the mess from one place to another because somehow I never seem to work in one place!

  1. I LOVE this, Susan! I love the paint brush graphics, too. That is so perfect, especially if it were to hold painting supplies. What a great gift idea, too!

    Hope you are well! My sister is still without power. My brother got his back yesterday and they are at two different ends of the island. Thankfully my son didn't have any issues. He just wants gas!
