I’m pretty confident in saying that in the last eight years of blogging, this is the first time that I’ve posted two “organization” related posts back-to-back. I’d feel a little weird about that if this post didn’t also contain tools, building stuff, and general awesomeness… but it does, so we’re good.
Because a girl really can never have too many tool boxes.
You may remember my first two fun and functional toolboxes from back in December.
I actually cut out the pieces for all four of them back then, but, you know, I randomly bought a house shortly after that and never quite got around to assembling the other two. These things happen… but probably not to normal people.
What I lack in normal, however, I make up for in tools.
Tuesday I spent a little too much time using my brain during the day and I really needed to build something to regain a little bit of my sanity after work. Since I’d just organized the tool room and was in desperate need of some more storage, grabbing the stencils and spray paint and knocking these together seemed like the perfect project.
I’ve been amassing quite the collection of electrical tools, wire nuts, and spare parts over the last six months, so this one was a given…
For the last toolbox, well, I just wasn’t sure what was most needed. I mean, I have a ton of drill bits, but I usually keep them in the regular “grab-and-go” tool bag that I tend to cart around with me, uh, everywhere.
Oh, what, like you’ve never taken your drill into the grocery store before?
But the truth is that I also tend to lose drill bits like hockey players lose teeth. Not without a fight, of course, but it happens, and not infrequently or without lot of swearing. So I thought dedicating the last toolbox specifically to bits and other drill-related accessories couldn’t hurt.
I mean, at some point my mom is going to need to take a break from praying for my heathen soul, and being able to find the half-inch drill bit when I need it accounts for at least half of the profanity I use on any given day.
So I managed to organize the tool room a bit more, regain some sanity, and save my soul, all with some 1×6 and spray paint. Not a bad job for an hours worth of work. If you’re interested in building your own, you can check out how I assembled these babies on the original post, here.
