I needed some quick and easy toy storage for the living room to catch the toys that inevitably end up there.  I had a basket in the corner, but then the toys made marks on the wall.  This cubby storage keeps them away from the wall and adds some more veritical space.  I made this project quick and easy with just my nailer (I didn't use pocket holes) and a simple stain finish.  I shortened the width to fit the space between my fireplace and the door, and as a result I did 2 cubbies instead of 3.
