How to show a guy you love and appreciate him?
By bringing home a $15 truck tool box from a garage sale! Com’on what self respecting man doesn’t like diamond plate? It’s practically on every tractor, fire engine, and monster truck!
Luckily hubby knew this was a man cave project for him and not going to be some random piece of junk about to collect dust. He loved the idea even more when I told him what it was going to replace in the garage…
These disgustingly old, spider harboring, rubbermaids. The truck box was going to be storage for the camp chairs, extra golf clubs and other Mancave randomness.
I did have to make some modifications to the truck storage box, before cramming it full of boy junk. First I marked the bottom corners of the storage box with a sharpie, where the cart wheels were going to be placed.
Next I drilled holes at each sharpie point.
Since the flecks of metal and remnants were sharp I cleaned up with a handheld vacuum after each set of holes (to prevent metal splinters finding their way into the pups paws)
Then using washers, screws, and nuts, we added the four cart wheels, then securing them on the inside of the box.
This turned out to be one of the easiest DIY man cave projects year to date! (I also got a few wife points in the process.) It’s not everyday that I bring home garage sale junk that is hubby approved. Now the before and newly improved garage storage…
Who knew diamond plate was the man equivalent of “roses”, and not just for monster trucks anymore?
Happy Sunday everyone!
