Hey friends! I made this cute, inexpensive apothecary style cabinet and I wanted to share it with you. It was so easy to put together, you can make one too!
I started with 12 of the wooden square craft boxes I found at Dollar Tree. (You can add more to make your cabinet as tall or as wide as you like.)
I removed all of the inner drawer pieces and aligned the outer pieces the way i wanted. Keep in mind, the boxes will not all be exactly the same size. You will have to arrange them in a way that is aesthetically pleasing. As you can see in the photo, they are not exactly aligned horizontally or vertically.
After I got them arranged to my liking, I glued each piece together with E6000. I used mini clamps and clothespins to help keep the pieces together while the whole piece dried.
After the piece was completely dried, I inserted the drawer pieces and added two coats of my favorite stain color: Jacobean from Minwax. *Be sure to wear gloves & an old pieces of t-shirt or cloth will suffice for applying the stain.
I found my hardware on Amazon. I wanted the card catalog style pulls. I wasn’t able to find a 12 pack so I found the cheapest 5 & 10 pack of pulls and ordered them.
Here’s the final piece with hardware added!
I’m super happy with how this cabinet came out! It actually looks like an antique! It and adds the perfect farmhouse, vintage/antique vibe to my decor & it all came together for under $30! If you decide to make one, I’d love to see!
Thanks for stopping by and checking out this project!

You’re welcome 😀
Please help me to find the boxes. I want them so I can build me one. I would be very appreciative. You do excellent work.
Hi Melissa, these boxes were at my local dollar tree when I made the post. Sometimes the items they carry are seasonal. I will check around the web to see if I see anything similar. 🙂
