I just placed my new “old style” tool holder in my back yard ont the same wall I had placed the ladder flower planters. I wanted a rustic looking holder and ended up designing this one. I wanted it to work with the flower theme of rustic items. I used all kinds of differant nails and even bent a few on purpose. I made this out of pallet wood too. I added a shelf on top and decided to use nails instead of the clamp tool holders I bought. More realistic I thought. Then I added a box and inside you can see I put plastic container inside and all my odds and ends garden things are safe from rain. Also I put in some of those beef jerky holders that hold my hose pieces and odds and ends for the water pumps. Also I was able to put things on the outside that won’t get hurt so everything is in reach but safe from rain. I had some rustic looking hinges and had to rebend them to fit the boards.
I added a little heart on the ends on top and also added a heart on top of the box and down the front. I can just lift the lid up with the overlap. I might just add a rope for a little neat effect and wrap it around the hearts I have placed down the front. I didn’t have any plans just went for what I wanted to make for a tool holder. This is under a good size eave so the tools will stay pretty dry. It’s a great little addition to my backyard decore. I just LOVE it! And my tools are where I need them. In the yard.
