looks great…most blanket chest I have seen are not on “legs”...so this is unique—-does that limit the weight you can put in it…I know if i make one I will use it to sit on as well…

You could sit on it or standup and jump on it! Plenty sturdy! It has been tested and seems grandkid proof, so far.
I thought the legs would make it look a bit different from the others I have seen. Seemed like a good idea at the time. :-)

I like it ! Good idea with the longer legs. It makes it easier on the back when reaching in side.
