We used 1" X 8" pine boards, we got at Menards.
I decided I wanted it to be 2 boards high so that she could reach all the way to the bottom to get any toy she wanted.
We made it 3 boards wide, to hold her MANY toys!
We screwed the corners together and then added a piece of 1" X 2"on the inside corners and sides, to keep it stable.
Underneath, we added a 1" X 8" to each end to keep the bottom boards stable.
We attached wheels to make it easy to go from the bedroom to the living room.
Our son in law has told us the wheels are the best part!
Then we stained it.
We drilled 2 holes in each end for the rope handles.
At Lowe's, they have any area of different sized rope on spools. You can choose the length you want and buy it by the foot. They even cut it for you.
On the inside of the toy box, we tied the rope in to knots. We tried a few different ideas for attaching it, but the knot worked the best.
I used my silhouette Cameo to make a stencil. I had the butterfly in my stash.
I used a cream colored paint to stencil it.
I wanted to keep it neutral so that she could use it in her bedroom, or the living room or perhaps even her closet.
