When a product is practical and beautiful it’s a winner in our eyes.
The Toyo Toolbox T-190 from Nook would make a lovely gift. It’s a practical piece of storage but would look great adorning any sideboard, shelf or cupboard. And toolboxes aren’t just for tools – they are excellent storage for paints, make up, jewellery, toiletries… all sorts.
This coated metal toolbox is stack-able with an attached hinged lid. Use to store tools or stationery. Made in Japan.
It would be great left in simple plain wood but there would be lots of decorative ideas and projects that could work.
Staining the wood to and alternative colour could make it sit well against other woods in the room. It would work well painted – a dark tone to make items pop, the colour of a wall to blend it in or pick a highlight colour from other accessories already in the room or pull a colour from the wall paper or patterned textiles.
In a kids room in could become a mini dolls home with different colours all over, maybe patterns papers on each back wall and decorating it could even be a great project for the whole family.
Hobbycraft would be full of all the things you’d need to start but also tester pots from DIY stores would give a perfect range of colours to choose from.
