Hello DIY Friends!

Look what you can make with a 1/2 sheet of plywood!

My friend Whitney at Shanty2Chic wrote me about taking on a vintage styel chest or trunk build.  I can’t believe we haven’t posted one already.  We worked on plans together and came up with this beautiful trunk!

You’ll need a 1/2 sheet of plywood (Whitney used PureBond for the beauty and because it’s formaldehyde free) and then some base moulding, 1/4″ plywood for the base, a few 1×6 boards for the top, and of course pretty hardware.  I love that you can make it your own by using different moulding, hardware or a different finish!

Here’s from Whitney:

I love this new chest we created!  It’s so pretty and functional at the same time!  You can easily change up the hardware or throw a coat of paint on it and you give it a whole new look.  I think this is a great beginner Kreg Jig project for those of you still looking at yours in the box 😉  Thanks so much for teaming up with me on this one Ana!!

Please take just a second to stop over and check out more details and photos from Whitney.  It’s always nice to see construction details!

Thank you Whitney!
