I pulled over to rescue this 80's beauty this weekend
and you won't believe what it looks like now!
The uses for this tote are endless but the garden
is where I'm choosing to display today...
I started out by filling all the holes in the wood
where the box was assembled.
I then gave the box a good sanding and a coat
then sanded the edges to give it a distressed look.
On one side I added a handle to hang a towel and on
the other side of the box I created a canvas pocket and
attached it using screws to hold seed packets or papers.
I used an old curtain rod hanger to hold string on the
inside of the tote...
and added a chalkboard to the side.
The finished tote couldn't be more useful in the garden
or for crafts, office supplies, knitting, or even in the kitchen.
The 80's never looked so good!
