My wife asked me to make a toy box for our 2 children, ages 3 and 1 1/2, to get the toys off the floor of our living room. I possibly over engineered this project. I took all the scrape plywood and pine pieces of wood that was sitting in a pile in the corner of my shop and made this monster. The top is made out of popular but I had to buy that at the Home Depot for about 50 bucks. The legs are from the back of a friends old piano that I disassembled. I painted all the pine and piano parts black and stained the plywood With Colonial maple, then polyurethaned them. The top is at normal counter height And is stained the same as the sides. The bins we got from Target and the inside rails that hold them are just scrap pine, stained as well.
It fits in with the other furniture I have made but it is huge. The boys love it and take the bins out to use it as a fort. They also pretend to make it with their toy tools.
