This was my first project. I already had a large ottoman, but it didn't hold anything. So I broke it apart for the box frame, added a bottom and hinged the lid. I was able to reuse the padding and upholster the pieces with sale fabric from Joann Fab ( love that store). Than I attached the fabric with a staple gun. Since it's in my bedroom, I like to keep wedding photos and such inside. Plus my 2 year old cannot open it!
Built from Plan(s)
$50, since I had the frame and padding already
