Tool Storage – Recycled/Upcycle

58071_501256676589266_559393502_nWhat a great way to store your yard tools -and reuse something that might have just been thrown away. This is an old filing cabinet (a heavy duty one) that has been lightly sanded, primed and then painted. A Heavy coat of polyurethane has been added to protect from scratches – even those are inevitable in a garage. On each end a piece of pegboard has been attached to provide room for small tools to be hung. A piece of thick plywood has been attached to the bottom and wheels have been added. This will allow the piece to be moved around to clean and it won’t be sitting on the floor where it can easily rust.
