An easy, but kind of time consuming, super cheap storage ottoman and seat.  I saw a plan for a cardboard box cube in a vintage DIY furniture book that supposedly can hold up to 400 pounds.  I used this plan to make this storage cube.

Step 1:

Materials needed:

cardboard boxes
cutting implements
glue
packing or duct tape

optional:
batting
fabric
paint
Good Idea.
Have you actually tried sitting on it? Or holding storage in it? Because cardboard doesn't seem too promising.
Beautiful! Looks very nice for cardboard - definitely going to try this!!
Amazing! i wanted to do something similar to this thnxs great tutorial!
Do you remember the title of the vintage book? Thank you
I found it!! It's "Nomadic Furniture" by James Hennessy and Victor Papanek. It's super groovy and even has a plan to make a cardboard car seat for a child...yikes!!
