Curb alert! This toy chest was in rough shape when I found it. It had a lid but it was so water damaged that it had to be thrown away. Other than that the toy chest was dirty, but that's something little that soap and water easily fixed. My husband made a new top with thick plywood. I used the electric sander to round off the edges so they wouldn't poke anyone. The nice couple that bought it from me are using it for their blankets.
