One of the things I have wanted to make since I started blogging
was one of these. It is a tool box. One of the web sites that I have
loved since I first found the blogging world has been Funky Junk
Interiors. She loves old wood more than I do, except she really knows
how to make things.
She has directions to make tool boxes and you can find it
I have stared at the directions and Thursday I decided that I had not
fooled with wood in a while so I took some of my old signs that I had hanging
on my shed, and I cut them up.
Let's say that my saw is okay for shapes you hang on the wall but it doesn't
work if you want to put it together so it looks good. When my husband got
home I asked him to come look, I had totally forgot about making a bottom.
I brought him in and he looked at the directions and he said, it would be a piece
On Saturday he cut it out on his saw and then he put it together and this is
how it looks on my old table. I love it so much. I know I need to paint it, but
I love how all the wood looks like it is old and put together because someone
needed a tool chest. So I am torn. I am thinking I will get some more boards
and have him make me some more and then maybe paint those and
beat them up some more and then they might look like antiques.
You can still see the words I put on them years and years ago.
The signs said, " Because Nice Matters." and the other one
says, "Amazing Grace." Because that is how I try to live.
I needed a reminder and I am still amazed at grace.
I have some other wood things out on the work bench but
I didn't have time to get to those this weekend, so maybe this
week I will have time. I really do enjoy old wood.
I just thought I would share these.
I hope you have a wonderful week.
