I needed footstools for my outdoor chairs that could be left outside in the gazebo. I also needed storage for citronella candles (a must-have in Florida) and lights. Using some old wine crates and parts salvaged from old chairs, I designed, and my brother built, these footstools. They are stained to match my chairs and coated with several coats of exterior polyurathane. The top comes off for storage and the inside is finished, too. This one is about 2 years old now and still looks good.
