Recycled toolbox


I found this old wooden box many years ago at a junk store. It was dirty and appeared to be used to store tools. I cleaned it up, painted it, and used wallpaper boarder to decorate it. Couldn't believe I also found this metal frame that was the exact size to hold it. I used it for years at the end of my bed to hold extra linens. It has traveled all over the country with me. I love keeping junk from the landfill and repurposing it.
A little paint and wallpaper border and 20 yrs later...
A place to drop my keys.
