One of my favorite things about the Haven bloggers’ conference is getting to try new products. I was so excited to return to my room one day to find three DIY kits from Home Depot. The tool caddy pictured above was one of those treats!
I thought the packaging was so cute with the orange mesh tie.
Each kit contained the pre-cut wood pieces, hardware, and instructions.
There was a slight problem with my tool caddy. The slot for the bottom piece of lumber did not line up. Let’s take a closer look.
When I tried to slide in the bottom piece, it left a gap on one side because the slots were not lined up properly. I decided to complete the assembly then I cut a piece of scrap lumber for the bottom and screwed it in from the sides.
One of the kits was a wine rack. You can see in the photo below that one part has had the gray paint applied.
I had these little silver medallions that came from a belt that was being discarded and decided to use them as embellishments.
I used glue to attach them to the side.
I gifted the wine rack to a friend and kept the tool caddy. I can think of lots of uses for the tool caddy and look forward to using it for many years.
