Farmer's Market Toolbox

What can you make with four wide (5 1/2") pallet boards and a 1"x 2" scrap?

A simple toolbox:

This is very easy construction--screw the sides into a bottom piece, all pieces being the same length.

"Dogear" two shorter pieces and attach them for the ends,

and then add a handle.

The fun comes in the finishing.  I used Fusion Mineral Paint--Upper Canada Green on all of it first and then the new Seaside from the Michael Penney collection.

Why do I love this paint?  It has amazing coverage, even though it seems watery--it covers usually in one coat.  And the best part--no finish required!!

I stenciled it with Old Sign Stencils from Funky Junk interiors.  So fresh and fun and useful,

perfect as a centerpiece, or to plant in, to hold paper plates, napkins, and silverware for an outdoor barbecue, for magazines and books.
