Produced by Todd Moore
Build 18" x 18" x 18" five-sided box with plywood and screws. The edges must be very level. No need to miter corners as they will not be seen.
Cover inside and outside of box in neutral tight weave cotton fabric—linen or something similar that has some texture to it works well since the texture will show through the paint.
Roll on a coat of paint on the fabric inside and outside of box. Let dry, then add another coat. A paintbrush will come in useful in getting the crevices and corners on the inside of the box. Let dry.
Along the edges, adorn with silver nail head trim, placed 1 1/2" to 2" apart.
