As discussed on Day 13‘s post with toolboxes being so prevalent on our farm you can imagine tools are as well. Majority of the time tools around our farm are covered in grease and dirt as they are needed on the go and are not properly put away or cleaned until needed next time. This being said I don’t really see tools for the more than what they are, objects that assist in doing other things. Have you ever thought about decorating or creating things with tools? If you check out my 30 Days of Farm Related DIY Pinterest Board you can link back to the site where alot of these ideas came from!
I never would have considered making tools into a frame, a paper towel holder, or even a wall art piece. My next issue is how do I get my family to let go of their tools. So far I haven’t seen them just throw them away unless they are absolutely broken. In which case they are probably to broken for me to craft with.
Be sure to check out others blogging 30 Days of Agriculture and come back tomorrow for Day 17.
