A Repurposed Toolbox Drawer

Sometimes a brand new project is born from an old one.

Created from the drawer of an old toolbox... 

would you have ever thought? 

One of the drawers that I didn't use for this old
garden project became this vintage stylin' memo board.

I removed the felt which was a pain in the butt in itself
and flipped the drawer bottom over so that the beautiful galvanized steel that was under it came shining through.

The ladies in this old photo are my grandmothers and aunts from days gone by, notice how nicely dressed everyone was!

I left the drawer handles on for character and added a chain to the top for hanging using small pieces of roof flashing.

created a magnetic memo board that using vintage scrabble pieces and can hold notes or photos in rustic, vintage style!

This magnetic memo board was snatched up from 
the shop in a minute!
