Think outside the box with shelving you can stack as you like!
For a stylish display solution, make these easy boxes and stack them up against a wall! The whitewashed sides give a modern look to the plywood while still revealing the grain, and you can paint the backing panels in a range of your favourite colours. Master the basics to build your first box, then up the ante with boxes of all sizes to create a fab arrangement that suits your space.Try this!
- A mix of timber and plywood boxes or crates (think new or vintage) look fabulous when used as side or bedside tables, especially when you add table legs or lockable castor wheels.
1. For a small fee, you can have your plywood cut to size at your local hardware store. If you want to do this yourself, mark out your plywood, then clamp it to a straightedge for level cutting. Use a power saw to cut it to size. 2. You can use the same method, but adjust the measurements to suit alternative-sized boxes. Our display features 600 x 300mm, 300 x 300mm, 400 x 400mm and 400 x 200mm, all with a depth of 300mm.
