I then took everything out of the DIY bucket, chucked out a lot of bits and bobs that I had kept for a long time and am unlikely to ever use, like strange screws, little tools and miscellaneous stickers, etc. I then realised that the white plastic bucket was broken and went to find a replacement. Coincidence? I had been looking for a new use of my mother’s giant metal biscuit tin, and it fit the bill perfectly. So I arranged all the large tools in the tin, then added the tapes and insulation strips on top of it. It was a perfect fit.
Hopefully, this has inspired you to pick your own little project: that may be under the sink, like this project, or a single drawer, a box sitting somewhere, a windowsill, a table surface,… anything really. The important thing is: you want to get started somewhere!
