This wood box is simple and it’s super versatile and can be used in all kinds of different
ways. Really easy to make!
Narrow box out of 1 x 6 boards and with a rustic, distressed look with a combination of
stain and white paint.
3 – 1 x 6 cut to 39.5cm
2 – 1 x 6 cut to 17.8cm
miter saw and/or circular saw
8 1 3/4″ Screws
paint or stain of choice
First, cut all your 1 x 6 pieces .The top two pieces are the short sides, the next two
pieces are the long sides, and the bottom piece will be the bottom of the box.
Use 8 1 3/4″ screws to attach the short sides to the long sides (if wanted it can be predrilled).
Then drop the bottom
piece inside the box
you’ve created and add
screws to secure. Sand all
the edges down
smooth and wipe the box
to remove any dust.
After the box is built, you can add whatever finish you like. To get chippy look you can
start with a darker stain (e.g Walnut) on the wood underneath, than paint lightly over
the stain with white paint (use clean brush and keep it dry).
Once you’re happy with the distressing, add a drawer pull to each of the short sides.
There are variety of these kind of antique-looking pulls.
Hope you loved this DIY Woodbox Centerpiece!
