Make a Gorgeous Tool Caddy From Tin Cans and a Cutting Board

This super handy tool caddy is made from 3 repurposed items:
Tin cans; belts and a wooden cutting board.
It started with four large tomato cans, two tuna cans, and a wooden cutting board to attach them to for a great handle and carry all.
I stained and painted the cutting board.
To a nice distressed look.
to go with the leather belt scraps and buckles that I hot glued onto the cans.
Then drilled through the cans and leather into the board at an angle to make pilot holes. Then attached the decorated cans on the board with screws.
The larger cans hold pliers, screwdrivers, scissors, etc.
While the tuna cans hold screws and a tape measure on the sides of the board, but elevated for easy reach and view.
I love how handy this tool caddy is!

    I really like this idea. I can put those too small belts to use. 😁

    Great use of cans and old belts. would make a great gift. I'll be making a few of these. I will add a magnet to the bottom of the tuna cans, that will help keep the screws in.
