We love this piece! Mid Century Modern Storage, glam, and function. We store the bed linens for our sleeper sofa inside. We put a silver tray with some current bible studies and some fraternal and sorority magazines in it along side a pen, pad, and Kleenex. We rest our feet on it, put drinks in the tray. Love it! Not a high end piece, so I sprayed it with stain and waterproofing.
