Garden Tote5:00:00 AM
A garden tote with a screened bottom
is the perfect carrier for the garden...
I created a box using reclaimed wood
from a broken table... I love using old discarded
pieces giving them new life as a new project.
On the bottom of the box I stapled a wire mesh gutter guard
bought for pennies at a garage sale.
I added a handle to the box
then painted it with a mixture red and green paint
that created a beautiful brown.
When the box was dry I hand painted the word GARDEN
onto the side of the tote then distressed the words with sandpaper.
A hook on the inside of the handle holds a ball of string and
two metal IKEA pails are added to
hold garden tools and supplies.
This tote is perfect for gardeners.
Dirt from tools or fresh picked flowers
and vegetables will just fall through
the screened bottom of the tote leaving the mess outside.
I'm looking forward to a garden full of flowers
and vegetables this year!
