My Mother-in-law, who lives with us had talked about getting a blanket chest for in front of her bedroom window. I thought it would be someting I could make. I just used 3/4” plywood and some moldings that I found at HD. The bottom edge has the same molding as the top edge and I mounted the chest on 3” lengths of 2×4. I was about to paint it and put a lid on it when she asked if I could put some kind of back and sides to hold a cushion on top. Fortunately (or not) she came home with a cushion before I had mounted the pieces and I found out that it was smaller than the lid, so I cut out the lid and cut down the back and sides and this is it.
I found out that 3/4” plywood is much more that I need and its heavy.
