If you could also please confirm that this is indoor furniture - that the timber won't be exposed to the elements?

We are looking forward to seeing your project come together.
So far these are my ideas. The storage box / seat will be used inside only as a desk chair
I'd also like to welcome you to the Bunnings Workshop community.
I can suggest using 600 x 18mm x 1.2m Pine Utility Panel for the front, back and lid. You can use 300 x 18mm x 1.2m Pine Utility Panel for the sides and base. As these boards are already the correct width for your project you'll only need to cut them to the correct lengths.
You could consider creating the storage box out of plywood and you'd be able to use our cut to size service instore to get the correct panel dimensions.
We have a fantastic range of cushions available which you might like to use with your project.
Please let me know if you need further assistance or had any questions.
That’s fantastic, thanks Mitchell

ill upload the finished product when it’s completed.
