Learn how to make your own easy DIY grooming box for just $9.99!
When I decided to purchase a wooden grooming box, I quickly discovered how expensive they can be. I wanted a beautiful wooden box, but I didn’t want to spend a lot. I am not a fan of the colorful plastic grooming boxes I had growing up and my soft shelled grooming bags are similar to my purse – an endless pit where rubber bands and hoof picks go, never to be discovered again.
I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before, but I live about 1.5 miles from the largest IKEA in the country. I go there a lot. Whenever I need something random, I run to IKEA. I can tell you where everything is, how to navigate the parking lot, where to take short cuts if you don’t want to go through the store, and what time to go. I’m an IKEA master. One day I spotted the SKOGSTA box. While IKEA intended it to be a nice garage or kitchen organizer, I realized it was the perfect grooming box for $9.99.
I added a few personalized touches like black paint around the edges and a silver glittery horseshoe. I love how simple, clean, and expense this looks. I know the holidays have passed, but this would really be a great way of packaging horse brushes, or grooming supplies. You can also try stenciling or painting your horse’s name on the box.

Below is my first YouTube video! I’m so excited and nervous to put this out there. One of my big goals for 2018 is to include recipe and DIY videos along with my blog posts. I definitely have a ton to learn about making better videos, but in order to learn you must begin. So please watch my video and subscribe to my channel.
Paint or stain (optional)
Horseshoe (optional) – glue if you adhere your shoe. I recommend using Aleene’s Tacky Glue.
