Stap 1: Old wooden box structure

Old wooden storage boxes were often used in the old days, and if you don’t have one you could acquire it at a second hand or antique shop. Some grandparents may still have them about.

Stap 2: Wooden feet for the wooden storage box

We used these measurements to structure the feet for the box see the measurements in this photo here.

Stap 3: The support structure

We've made this support structure as seen here, but you can also skip this step and purchase this structure at home decor stores.

Stap 4: Painting and decorating

This step requires your choice of paint and décor options for your wooden storage case and support stand.

Stap 5: All done

Add your choice of decor items to display on the little table and watch your home space brighten up with rustic charm. You can also replace the handles and trimmings to create a more vintage look.
