I desperately needed a toy bin the boys couldn't just dump over. This is a lot bigger than you'd think, but stores a LOT of toys! $30 for the project panel wasn't doable for me, planning on 3 of them. So I used 3/4" plywood instead since I was going to paint anyway. Then normal 1x12's and such for the rest. An hour to cut and build, the rest of the time was painting and waiting for it to dry.
Built from Plan(s)
Using project panel, $50. Using 3/4" plywood like I did instead, $25-30.
Estimated Time Investment
Afternoon Project (3-6 Hours)
Type of Wood
3/4" plywood, whiteboard pine 1x12's,8's, and 2's. 1/4" MDF Beadboard I had left over for the back.
Primed with Kilz 2, because it is really low odor and covers well. Then I mixed the yellow I had from a bookcase with the a blue from a dresser I painted, to make a nice spring green semi-gloss.
