The other day I was reading one of my favorite blogs, Funky Junk Interiors , and was presented with a challenge. MAKE A TOOLBOX! I am totally in... I started thinking about what I could use and where I could use it. I chose that scrap rabbit cage waiting for the curb.
First, I salvaged a few pieces of weathered wood. Cleaned it up and let it dry for a few days. Then, began the planning. Really there's not much of that. I don't measure often... I just start cutting and creating. I could make a carpenter cringe!
My "INSPIRATION" is my 4 year old.She is a wonderful hardworking dandylion picker! I get all sorts of short stem
So, I finally came up with this...
My favorite part is the chicken wire bottom.
Although I am really happy to have a place to display my "weed picker's" treasures...I would suggest wearing a hazard suit when cutting wood that has been unattended for many decades. I skipped that simple safety measure and have been brewin a mold induced sinus infection since. I managed to avoid needing a tetanus shot after handling the rusted chicken wire again. I avoid pitchin things I know could be repurposed but the scraps of the rabbit cage are officially hitting my curb.
