This vintage storage box is made using pine boards. The top is a plywood board covered with foam and a neutral cotton fabric. The sides were assembled by gluing boards together and then cutting to size. The 10 degree angle cut gives it a dramatic effect. The edges were framed with an "L" shape molding and nailed into place. To ensure the top did not come off when used as a seat, we added a frame to the underside of the top. The added benefit of a clean line to the stapled fabric edge was a plus. The color was achieved by applying a coat of Minwax Special Walnut over Minwax Early American. Once dried, we stenciled the word "vintage" with black acrylic paint and added a top coat of Minwax polyurathane for extra protection to the finish.
