    I'm glad you didn't paint it because it looks perfect like it is and so natural with the flowers.
  • Love this concept. Have made a few box planters from rescued timber boxes at farm sales. I used a clear lacquer to preserve the natural timber, drilled holes in the two short ends and threaded rope 'handles' through. I've also used them to house pine

    Love it! Too bad my old tool box is beat up metal.

    @Nicolette T, same principle, holes, dirt, plants. Seal the outside if you love the colors or paint it first. Give the inside a coat or 2 of epoxy paint to keep the whole thing from rusting to pieces. 1 can of rustolium should do it inside and out.
  • I just love this!!
  • I have seen metal ones too! Totally cute also :)
  • I love all toolboxes - wood, metal, big, small - I don't discriminate! Love your flower filled one!
  • Love it Shannon!! just stunning!!

    I am moving and I found my grandfather's tool box. He died in 1952 so it is quite aged and looks pretty good! I am thinking about using his tool box, full of some really old tools, and doing some planting myself.
  • Oh how fun Roanna. What a great find!!!!
