from my workshop!

With pieces from an old dresser I broke apart to get out of my basement and some leftover pieces of old cedar siding from a neighbor, I created a rustic toolbox table centerpiece today. 

To make the sides I found the center of the top then measured one inch to each side. I then drew a line from that mark to a mark I made about 4" up the side to make a tent shape.

I used wood glue and my nail gun to build the box.

Next I added a large dowel for the handle.

I attached a thin plywood base with leftover wood from my bathroom repair project, then gave it a coat of sample paint I bought for .38 from Home Depot's oops section.

I distressed the edges of my finished crate with an electric sander and now it's perfect as a centerpiece on my farmhouse table

The entire project was made from found and reclaimed wood from my basement workshop. The most expensive part of this whole project was the .38 I spent on the oops paint.

This box is perfect as a table centerpiece or for transporting items to the deck for outdoor entertaining.

All for less than a cup of coffee... way less!
