I can’t be the only one that has tools all around the house and whenever I am looking for a certain tool, I can never find the one I need. It’s so frustrating! To help stop this madness I created a way to keep my tools in the house concealed as home decor so our DIY essentials are always handy when we need them & they look good too!
By using some storage boxes, like these from Ikea, & some glass jars, also from Ikea, I created some amazing storage for tools, nails, screws, & other DIY essentials that look great as part of our home decor. The best part of this? It also makes a great Fathers day gift! For the dads who love working around the house or the dad who is always losing his tools & is sick of digging through the garage for an hour to find the items he needs to do a project, giving him some tools & DIY essentials in nice storage that can be kept in plain site in the house may just be the perfect gift that he needs & wants. Another bonus? The tools do not have to be wrapped because they will be in great looking storage boxes or baskets & jars. Of course you can add some tags, ribbon, bows, and a card to make it all festive for Father’s day.
All you need for this simple DIY project is some baskets or boxes that you love & some jars. The jars can be clear or solid, but they just have to have easy access for hardware, or other odds & ends that you want stored in the jars. Label the boxes or baskets with the contents that you will be placing inside using the labels that come on the boxes or you can make some labels of your own. Fill the baskets with your tools that you want easy access to or if this is a gift, fill with tools you know he will like. In the jars place nails, screws, and any other hardware that you want easy access to. The baskets can then be placed on bookshelves, desks, dressers, or anywhere else that fits your home & lifestyle. There you have it! Good looking storage for your DIY items, and a handy fathers day gift that any guy would love to get. Now all of your DIY essentials are right at your fingertips at all times, and you just added some lovely decor to your home as well.
