♥I love this, I hope to get this good soon!!!!

I have the cricut machine...is that how you did the lettering?♥

I simply printed the font on white paper off my computer, taped it onto the toybox, traced with a ball point pen (which leaves a slight indent into the wood) then filled in, very, very carefully, with pink paint using a tiny and medium brush. I have yet to purchase a cricut, too busy sawing wood! Good luck.

just gets more impressive, what a steady hand you have there! wow!
Will post my kiddos soon, thanks for sharing, I love your work

Fethiye the box and feet are made from 3/4" cabinet grade plywood. The top edge is 1x2 and there is cove moulding are both the top and bottom trim.

You can see the build post here:

The feet are jigsawed from 3/4" plywood (only because I totally forgot to buy the base moulding at the time).

Good luck!

Where did you find the lettering to print? All of my font programs only go up to 76pt or 288pt but are to small. Any advice?
