This easy and versatile farmhouse style wood box is perfect for holiday decorating or corralling your stuff.
We’re on week TWO of the Deck the Home Blog Hop!! Last week was so much fun and this week, the projects involve wood. I am partnering with Hometalk to host a DIY workshop in my area, and the first project is going to be this super easy farmhouse style wood box.
Of course when I styled this box, I had it for fall, but I’m going to show you several ways you can style it!
First I need to show you just how easy it is to build this farmhouse style wood box!
1 x 6 cut to 12.5 inches (1)
1 x 4 cut to 14 inches (2)
1 x 4 cut to 5.5 inches (2)
**Whenever you operate power tools, ALWAYS wear eye protection**
Measure and cut all of your pieces.
Sand all the edges of the pieces so they are nice and smooth. I also recommend dry fitting the pieces to make sure it’s going to fit nicely together. If not, you will need to make any necessary adjustments.
Add wood glue to the short end of your 1 x 6 and smooth out the glue.
Then line up the short end of the 1 x 4 all the short end of the 1 x 6.
Using the brad nail gun, and making sure you’re not too close to the edge, nail the pieces together.
Repeat the above steps for the other short side of the box, then lay the piece on its side. Add wood glue to the edges.
Lay the 14 inch 1 x 4 and nail. Repeat these steps for the other side of the box.
That’s it! I told you that building this farmhouse table top box would be easy! After the wood glue dried, I painted the box with chalk paint, distressed it and used stain to give it a rustic look. You could use any color paint or stain to compliment your decor.
There are so many fun ways you can use this farmhouse table top box!
