This extremely sturdy storage chair is not just easy to build and highly functional, it's also super cute!

I made this chair for my daughter quite a while ago, and it's the go-to chair for her room.

I find myself often sitting at it, because the chair is so sturdy.

The storage compartment is perfect for books or crayons or even playdoh. Always predrill with a coutnersink bit and use screws. Check for square after each step (see the HOW-TO section). 2 – 2×2 @ 26 1/4″ (Legs, you can choose to taper the tops as shown in the plans) 2 – 1×4 @ 11″ (Back Rails) 1 – 2×2 @ 11″ (Back Joint Piece) 2- 1×2 @ 11″ (Back and Front of Seat Apron) 2 – 1×2 @ 9 1/2″ (Sides of Seat Apron) 2 – 2×2 @ 13 1/4″ (Front Legs) 1 – 1×10 @ 11″ (Bottom of Storage Compartment) 2 – 1×4 @ 11″ (Front and Back of Storage Compartment) 2 – 1×4 @ 9 1/2″ (Sides of Storage Compartment) 1 – 1×2 @ 11″ (Back, Seat Top) 1 – 1×12 @ 14″ (Seat Top) Back Legs.

If you choose to taper your back legs, A, measure and mark in a straight line as shown above. Please note the chair that I made, I skipped this step (and it looks fine! Screw the first of your chair back pieces, B, to the legs as shown above. Also note, you can cut out an arch in the back, as done by Land of Nod in the first photo. Construct the above chair legs and apron piece, as shown above, using pieces D, E and F.

You will only need to use 1 screw to screw from each of the legs into each of the aprons, for a total of 2 screws per leg. Place the two chair pieces together, as shown above.

However, make sure you add 2 screws from the side apron into the end edges of the back apron. Adjust the chair so the back apron is flush on all outside edges with the Joint Piece.

Then fasten with 1 screw near the center of the back apron, as shown above.

Allow the chair to “self level” by wiggling it until the chair rests flat.

Then finish screwing the chair together by adding a screw on either end of the back apron into the Joint Piece. If you have your nailer handy, build the storage box as shown above.

You will only be able to nail through the bottom of the storage box sides into the edges of the bottom of the storage box. If you do not have a nailer, go ahead and use screws.
