I have always loved the look of vintage wooden tool boxes decorated for the holidays. Since we had no wooden tool caddy of our own I asked Jason to help me make one :). I wanted our DIY wooden tool box to have a rustic, weathered look so we decided to use pallet wood because pallet projects are just the best! I am sharing our new wooden tool box as part of a new monthly blog hop and this month is all about fall DIY projects. Be sure to check out all the DIY fall projects at the bottom of this post.
DIY Wooden Tool Box for Fall Decorating

The first thing we did was break apart the pallet so we could use the boards for creating the tool box.
One the boards were off of the pallet, Jason cut them into 5 pieces. One for the bottom, two matching sides and two end pieces.
Using a pin nailer, he nailed the boards together.
He then cut a thin strip of wood to nail to the top of the wooden tool box.
Lastly, He sanded down the wooden tool box lightly to keep the texture of the wood.
Once our new wooden tool box was done I had a lot of fun decorating with it. I like the look of it so much I had a mini photoshoot all for the love of a wooden tool box :).
Our new wooden tool caddy is the perfect size at 25″ by 6.5″ by 11″ to add mason jars to. I added some yellow mums from our garden to add a pop of color to our table.
Apples look really pretty in the tool box too :).
