Creative Team member, Amber is here to show us how to make a DIY Toy Box with a Herringbone design! Let’s be honest I have a toddler in the house and my downstairs is seriously OVERRUN with toys and I needed to figure out something to do about it. One of the things I knew I wanted for my toy box was to put casters on the bottom so that it could be easily moved around. For the front and back of the box I wanted to do a pattern with the crate pieces because I liked the idea of giving the toy box some personality!
With all of that hard work that went into cutting each board I wanted to make sure they were all securely adhered to the toy box frame by not only nailing but gluing each board down as well. I also wanted to be able to add some handles to make it easier for little hands to grab onto. Of course for a little toddler on the run I added casters so she can wheel her toy box around anywhere she wants! For the interior of the box I used leftover paint from an accent wall in our living room but to make sure it stood up to the abuse of all of those toys over time I applied several coats of polycrylic.
I absolutely LOVE how it turned out and after using it for a couple months now I honestly wouldn’t change a thing about it.
