Toolbox becomes bathroom storage
A few years back when I started DIY Divas, I made up a few of these handy toolboxes as a project for the ladies. They are so quick and easy to make. However, I ended up throwing most of them away because the laminated pine was wet and when eventually it dried out, the wood split wide open.
You can easily slap together this pine toolbox with a few scraps of pine, and no special care is required, as you want it to look rustic anyway!
To make the holes for storage jars, use a large diameter hole saw and a 500W drill.
Don't attempt to use a hole saw with a drill/driver, or you will end up with a burnt out tool. Use only a 500W corded drill for this.
Drill the hole so that it is slightly smaller than the diameter of any rim around the top of your containers.
To paint, use a low-sheen PVA, such as Builders Warehouse inhouse brand, Modo Paint. I use this paint often with successful results. To protect, wipe down with Woodoc Antique Wax or spray on Rust-Oleum clear spray.
To hang your storage box onto the wall, mount a couple of keyhole brackets at the back.
