Open Toy Box

Submitted by Mom2As on Thu, 09/19/2013 - 11:41

I needed a place to store larger toys, but was nervous about having a toy box with a lid. This project was fun to make and did not take long to complete. I love the finished product!

I added a base moulding and mitered the edges, using wood filler to fill any gaps. I also added bun feet to match other furniture in the room. I love the stability (and forgiving nature!) of the bun feet. I'm really pleased with this project - it was my first time to use Ana White plans, and I will definitely be back for more! So much easier than my typical "start from scratch" project!

Estimated Time Investment
Afternoon Project (3-6 Hours)
Type of Wood
MDF, Pine trim; inexpensive base moulding
Finish Used
leftover antique white paint/primer in eggshell. I intended to do a gel faux finish over the top to antique it a bit, but we had friends coming over and I wanted it finished so I left it white. I may add the gel in the future but for now I enjoy it as is.
