GREAT IDEA! I eat Craftster!

I'm going to use this when I get my garden spot created. I'm bad about my tools too.

you could use marine grade varnish on the outside to protect your beautiful work!

Great Idea!!!  I was just thinking yesterday that I hate trudging across the entire property every time I forget to grab the right tool for the yard.  Unfortunately, I don't think I'll be able to copy it unless I make 3 and buy duplicate sets of tools.  My garden is TOO spread out.  I think I'll have to make/buy/create a carry-all type of tool holder.

I really like this though ... maybe someday, in a smaller lot ..... ?  Smiley

Nice tool storage idea. I really need something like this for my small garden tools. I'm constantly hanging my spade on a post and then looking over each post to see where I left it previously. Now, to find a mailbox...

Just a wee little update.  Its been in the yard since August, I did nothing to protected it through the winter.  So far, 99% of the paint has held up.  The only place where the paint is flaking off is on the flag.  Grin  Through the winter, it stored our row markers and the rubber snakes we put in the garden to protect our seeds.  Very handy!

You are so VERY clever, m'dear!

When my parents' mailbox was replaced I wouldn't let it be thrown out and it's been sitting right outside my crap room (craft room, but have a lot of crap in it, so...) doing nothing but making me sad as both of my parents  are gone now. But, alas! Thanks to you, it will now have a purpose and make me happy once more! Thanks so much for sharing this!

Acrylic doesn't last very long outside- particularly on metal. Spray varnish the *hell* out of it with Krylon or something and it'll last a lot longer.
