Re-purposed Tool Boxes and Cutting Boards

In between our trips back and forth to the lake I've been trying to get caught up on some of my re-purposing projects.   I have so much stuff to do and I can't seem to get caught up.  I can't even show you the before's on most of this stuff because I lost a ton of photos when my laptop crashed back in June.  Here's a shot of one of the wooden tool boxes - I picked up 2 of them and refinished them.

I think this is such a fun way to re-purpose old tool boxes and give them new life....

They are cute little crates for coffee service, napkins and silverware, vases or even flowers....

 The Owl cutting board is super thick and heavy.   I sanded it down and then stained it with coffee grounds....

I love the multiple colors and a coat of coconut oil really brings them out....

The pizza server was also sanded smooth and stained with coffee grounds before I stenciled the word Pizza on one side and then used my wood burning kit on it....

Coconut oil on this brought out the nice patterns and colors of the wood.

 All items are for sale at The Hodge Podge in Benton, KY.

  1. I love the woodgrain on the owl cutting board!

  2. Great job on all! The "flowers" tool box would look cure with little clay pots in there! That coconut oil sure made the wood turn out nicely !

    1. Yeah, I like to use the coconut oil - it really makes a difference.

  3. Hi Kim! :)
    I never thought about using coconut oil, trying that tomorrow! ;)
