Upcycled (Refurbished) Bottom Box/ Tool Chest : John's Project

Last July, John found this bottom box/ tool chest at ReStore for $20.  It just seemed like too good of a deal to pass up, so he went to work cleaning it up and brainstorming ways to use it.

 His idea was to make a countertop for the piece and make it be a sort-of work station that could be used either in the garage or in the house somewhere. 

Here the sides and bottom door have been painted a flat black and the top counter was made out of 2x4s.
 He sanded the countertop and rounded the edges so it was nice and smooth.  Then he distressed the wood.
 A coat or two of stain and some clear coat.
 And, the finished product!  A nice work station and tool box. 

Right now we actually have this in our office as storage for paper and other extra office supplies.  Our office is very industrial, so it goes well :-)
