Up-cycle a toddler bed - just in time for Christmas

My wife told me about this great idea of building a storage bench from a toddler bed headboard and footboard. We found a free toddler bed and then bought the supplies that I needed to get started. 

First was to cut the footboard in half and line it up with the headboard. 

Then I started building the bench seat/storage box. 

After putting the box on I framed out the seat. 

 With the seat and hinge on I was ready to stain and seal. 

I chose to use natural color stain and seal it with polyurethane.

 The boys seem to like it. I guess it won't be a surprise on Christmas morning. 

Now what should the kids keep in it?
