Rusty Junk Wooden Tool Box

I did it ! Funky Junk Interiors (Donna) is my inspiration.

Drill, screwdriver, drill bits, old screws, rusty hook/eye and hinges, two old rulers and - I have a funky junk tool box.


Here is the before - just as it was found at a garage sale.


Unearthed some rusty hinges and a big hook/eye from my shed.
Rulers are from earlier garage sale finds.
Used my small drill (my Christmas present from years ago), and two sizes of drill bits so I wouldn't split the old plywood.
Hand screwed the screws (that sounds funny).


Garden art - handy as well.


Another 'dream' accomplished.
