Then I found a pile of old yardsticks in my Grandparents garage so I figured I'd make myself one. Which at my house "making it myself" means to go find my husband and explain my crazy idea to him and have him make it. His response was "You don't need more containers. A ruler box? Seriously?" Then like the nice guy he is he made it for me.
The old yardstick I started with.
I cut the wood all by myself with my husband's giant saw. I am trying to learn the woodworking stuff. The sides are 15 inches and the little pieces are 5 inches.
The bottom is a piece of hardboard leftover from the playroom chalkboard.
The sides got glued and nailed with teeny finish nails. Then the bottom glued and nailed. You could totally just glue it.
The little box ended up on the entryway table to hold keys and sunglasses.
I may stain it but for now I like it plain.
Love how it turned out!
