Yay! So so happy- just finished making an ottoman! Wow- if I made another, there are things I'd do differently, but- yay!!! I built it,
 and then covered it in batting and a nasty old sheet,

and then covered it with some fabric I got at 1/2 price because it was the end of the bolt! Yippee!

Awesome! I really like that fabric. How much stuff can you store in it?

Why didn't I think of that? "Gosh!"  Really though, great job!  I need a couple at my house- maybe it would help all those piles of junk (you know, bills) on the floor!

*blush* Wow, thanks so much! And grasshopper- that's just it! I got so sick of looking at the piles of mail! lol I saw a thing like it in a magazine, I think it was Country Living, at the grocery store, but it was expensive ($130!!) and pink, so I thought I'd try to make one myself to hold a filing system! This one is quite big, and as I said, if I did it again, I'd change the dimensions to make it a little shorter, as it's 25.5 inches long, 16 inches wide, and 16 inches deep, inside the box, with another few inches of height with the foam for the padded seat. I'll totally get up a tute! I'm so thrilled you guys like it- I love this site and have been so inspired by all y'all that it feels great to be able to share something I made!  Grin

Great job!Love the different steps photos.

Did you build the box yourself? I've had a few of these in my head for awhile but I was hoping to be able to skip that step. Yours turned out great! I'd never thought of using it for file storage, I was thinking of blanket storage/extra seating/coffeetable for my living room. Well done, you.
