DIY Chevron Wood Storage Box

So if you follow me on Instagram or Facebook you may have seen a few sneak peaks into some cray cray "wood working" I've been doing...and after a week of fumbling around and trial and error I have a finished product.   Readers please meet my A-DOR-A-BLE 
Chevron Wood Storage Box!
 This little gem was conjured up when I found this amazing project on pinterest

I'm obsessed with the white/gold/brown combo, the chevron design...pretty much every part was saying "pa-dow"...thats code for i like a lot!

So I got to work with some MDF, scrap wood, and left over wood stain...and out popped this crafty little box.
My Custom Chevron Storage Box Price Breakdown 
MDF - $10
Scrap wood - free the peeps at home depot are so nice to me
Gold Handle - $4 (Ikea)
Total Cost less than $15

I loved how inexpensive this project was because I am always aghast when I shop storage bins (which typically run +$30 for large size).  For the "staging" of my built-in's I need at least 4 large bins and that is some serious cash!  Not to mention my shelves are oddly shaped so I was having a hard time buying off the shelf!
If you like these Chevron Boxes, I will be back next week with a full "How-To".   I'm excited to repeat this project 3 more times so I can have the built-ins one step closer to "staged".   Let me know what you think?

Update:   Check out the new post here on a full and complete "how to" for this project

    If you have a minute to spare I'd be thrilled if you could share this post and maybe even your wainscoting post at my weekly Say G'Day linky party. It's on now and is on every weekend; I think this would be a great addition!

    Best wishes and happy decorating.
