We mentioned yesterday that some folks don't have a garage or work space to keep their tools in. Having to keep them out in the open presents not only aesthetic challenges, but logistical ones as well. Kill two birds with one stone and check out this super fabulous chest of drawers makeover!
Though some dressers might need a little extra help or support to have their drawers filled to the brim with tools, we're going to go out on a limb and say that unless you have an entire hardware store to pack in — this is not only a stylish idea, but accessible one as well.
When you talk about tool storage outside of a garage, 9 times out of 10, the box/tub/crate you're keeping them in, gets buried beneath other things in your closet. Using them means moving things out of the way and sometimes you just don't want to go through the hassle — which is how you end up using a meat mallet to hang pictures instead of pulling out a hammer (not that we've ever done anything of the sorts).
When your tools are kept at hand, organized in your living room or dining area, there's no excuses. Make sure to hop over to Crafty Nest to check out the full step-by-step tutorial (with pictures!) to making your own Tool Chest Dresser! It's easier than you think and would be a great place for tools or craft supplies.
