We needed a place to store my son’s toys. The old chest we used had a heavy lid which would sometimes fall on his fingers, luckily it never did any damage I found these plans on the Kreg Website under their projects section. I was able to build this for free since everything was leftover from other projects. I used leftover milk paint from old projects and then mixed together the remaining milk paint to get the light blue color.

Looks nice. I bet it fills up fast, and then he will be in it playing. :-)

If you decide to put a lid on it, use the lid protectors from Rockler. I attached my lids with a simple piano hinge, and then added two lid protectors. The lid won’t fall. You have to close it. Check it out here.
