Tool storage

Hi everyone, I hope you are enjoying your bank holiday break, you can always guarantee it will rain. Today I want to share an altered storage box/basket. I am always looking for things to store my crafting tools in and when I spotted this in a junk shop for a pound I just had to have it. It was looking rather sorry for itself, covered in cobwebs and soil.
Firstly I washed it all down and then sanded it to give it a key to paint it. I painted it cream and added some trims ect. I kept it simple because obviously it has to be practical too.

And here it is finished, I use it to store my paper towels, glue gun and other tools on top of my desk. Not bad for a pound and a bit of TLC!! I also like it because it is different. Hope you like it too.
