Driftwood Toolbox Crate

I made this made from driftwood. 

Pieces of wood, planks and boards that floated ashore and were found on the beach. 

I love all the things you can do with crates and totes.

 I have crates for everything!

This box was made using driftwood from my Driftwood Hunt ... now that was fun!

This toolbox is almost 2 feet long and 5 inches wide.  

It is made of old, sun bleached boards.

It has a good solid old broom stick for the handle.

And vintage drawer pulls on each side for jewelry.

This is big, heavy and reminds me of the beach!

The perfect crate for anything!
