Saw one of these old tool boxes at a antique store for $75.00 beautiful, but I wanted to use it outdoors as a flower box. Simple ,easy peasy pattern that the hubs made, about 5 minutes worth of saw time. Sanded and then my turn to make it pretty ;-). This particular box I stained ebony, and then painted with Scarlet Red paint. Let it dry, beat it up, sanded it for the aged look, stenciled and coated with a marine grade varnish. Popped in some flowers and done. If any one would like the pattern, I would be happy to share.
For only twenty dollars, I bought a whole bolt of burlap and relined my hayrack planters. New pre-formed liners would have cost over eighty dollars! I lined with newspaper, added soil and plants and mulched with the old cocoa fiber liners - so nothing was wasted.Plus , I still have lots of burlap for other projects! http://ourfairfieldhomeandgarden.com or http://pinterest.com/barbrosen/our-fairfield...

1953 Chevy truck is now my grand kids "playscape" Some days it is a pirate ship others it is a garbage truck. Sometimes we just sit on the bench in the cab and go to the beach. Our Bar-B-Que pit is under the hood. Wooden step up into the back bed. We love it.
