Step 1: CUT AND ASSEMBLE

I drew out the shape I like, then cut this out in 3/8" plywood, so I have 2 sides, a back, front and a bottom. The runners likewise just get jig-sawed out of plywood. The glued and pinnailed.

Step 2: PAINT AWAY!

Using white base paint and light blue chalk paint, we painted the sleighs, then rubbed through areas to give it an aged effect.

Step 3: FINISHING TOUCHES

Painted the runners gold, put some velvet inside and adorned it with some decorations.
