I made one of these out of pallet wood, like many of them that I see on Pinterest. I put it at the end of my bed and really love it! It has provided me with storage for my blankets, which I was having trouble finding a place for.
He uses pine in this tutorial, but if you really want to go cheap, you can do this with pallet wood and it will cost you virtually nothing to make!
This step by step DIY woodworking project is about building this wooden storage chest. If you want a really stylish way to store your kids toys, or any other small items, this chest project will come handy to you. There are so many reasons to make one of these! Many people use these to store sweaters, blankets, use them as a hope chest…the list goes on and on for the many things this can be used for!
Years ago, these were called Hope Chests and were traditionally used to collect items such as clothing and household linens, by unmarried young women in anticipation of married life.
If organization is a must… even outside, these can be used for pool boxes and can be a perfect addition to your yard even if you don’t have a pool. Storage benches can do much of the same, but also provide a wonderful seating addition. A DIY wooden pool box or storage bench like these can house anything from cushions and garden accessories to tools and soil.
