Play and Display-Toys in a Frame

The moment my husband walked in from his wood shop, with these wooden toys he had made for our only son – I was beside myself.

I walked the aisles of Michael’s craft store – looking for perfectly fitted glass safe’s (preferably with a lock and key).

When I saw these little wooden trays, I knew they were just perfect for these little wooden toys.

I began by painting the boxes white – because, as my girls say, I paint everything white.

After the paint was dry, I centered the hammer inside the box and marked with a pencil, where I wanted 2 little nails to go.

I nailed them in, only far enough to be secure, but not to go through the back of the frame.
