If you have a yard, but not quite enough room for a shed or out building, then a small container to hold assorted items is a must. Your options are usually the extra expensive wooden ones, or this generic plastic version. Instead of letting the space go to waste, this container now boasts super seating!
With the help of some foam and a little fabric, this chest is now a great spot to grab a seat. If you live in a more humid or moist climate, you might try using oil cloth instead to keep the elements at bay.
If you wanted to get extra crazy, you could bust out the Krylon Fusion spray paint (or any other paint formulated for plastic) and give the base a custom paint job as well. It's a fun reminder that just because you might be limited to big box store shopping, it doesn't have to appear that way!
