Again, we're going to use the woodpile bundles from Hobby Lobby.
I also cut four 2x2 pieces to 8" and a 1x10 to 24" long.
Now, I attempted to make the box as the Shanty Girls instructed, by putting together the sides first, then attaching them together and finally adding the base. However, I struggled and wasn't able to get my sides level. My box keep falling apart and I discovered that I really need a nail gun! That would make the process so much faster and easier to keep the boards in place.
So, after much frustration and pouting over not having a nail gun, I altered the plans! And I think it worked out pretty nicely!
LESSON: I did need to pre-drill the holes as I struggled with screwing these in to place. I stripped a few screws
So, I decided to make this a home on my fireplace and build a smaller version for my table. I sorta ❤ them!
Each box cost me less than $10! So. Much. Fun...
