One of my friends recently suggested that we make something like this reclaimed wooden box she found on Pinterest.
I love it and was on board immediately. I decided to make a sample box to see what supplies and tools we will need when we get together.
This was a very easy and relatively quick project.
Once I cut my wood I sanded each side and all of the edges. Wow! What a difference huh ??
For the two ends I decided to use some scrap pieces of 2×4. I didn’t want to use screws for this wood since it’s been outdoors for a long time and there are splits here and there. I thought wood glue and finished nails would be perfect and using the 2×4’s would add more stability.
I didn’t care about any of the imperfections, rather kind of liked them.
I used 1 1/4″ finished nails to assemble the box, then hammered a few of these old beauties to add to the rustic feel.
I stained the entire box with Minwax, dry-brushed with a light grey paint and sanded lightly.
The decor possibilities are endless !
Perfect timing for Easter.
Thank you Kelly for the inspiration and I am very excited to get together and make some of these cute reclaimed wooden boxes !
Thanks for visiting.
