Toolbox & Crate Christmas Tree
I have a long standing love with vintage toolboxes ‚Äì I don‚Äôt think I have ever met a reasonably priced one I didn‚Äôt love.
I have been trying to figure out what my crazy need for more toolboxes is about ‚Äì and then one day it hit me.
It is about my Grandfather.
I lost him when I was 15.¬† We were really close.¬† My mom uses his toolbox on her porch.
I think ‚Äì until it is my turn to have his ‚Äì I felt the need to have all the rest of them in the world
One day, I was moving some and I stacked one on top of another ‚Äì and an idea was born.
A Christmas Tree.
Because what is more Christmasy then a stack of toolboxes, right?
I love how the quirky lines contrast with my more traditional home.¬† I know it is not your ‚Äútraditional‚Äù style tree, but I happen to love it.
I smile as I walk past it ‚Äì and it has only been there two days.
And what else could I possibly top it with other than a small globe?
But beyond my love for my Grandfather‚Äôs toolbox ‚Äì I love the details of them ‚Äì and when someone‚Äôs name is carved, I love them even more.
Words on old wood, love‚Ä¶
It is the rustic details that make me the happiest.
So now here is the part where I admit this is only a grouping of my toolboxes with top ‚Äì I also have a whole bunch of opened top ones.
What about a big giant snowflake out of those?
What about you, I know it is early, but have you started to pull together Christmas ideas?
