Any ideas what to build with large tea chests? Answered

I have got five large tea chests which I would like to transform into something but have got no ideas. Any suggestions are very welcome, thank you.


you could always turn them into an entertainment center, stylish seating (seating with storage is the best), you could make a cabinet(without destroying them), floating storage boxes(they would also look really awesome on a wall you would have a 3d art self) oh i forgot with the seatign if you line them up so they look like a bench you can put it near the entrance of your home (on the inside) and visitors and your family can put their shoes inside.

Large like 100 x 50 x 50 cm? And do they have lids? (If so, are the lids hinged?)

- Put shelves in & use for bookcases
- Use two on end, plus one large board, to create a desk
- All the outdoor furniture you'll ever need
- Stack (securing together) to make a storage-rich room divider
