Cubbies

I decided to build these storage cubbies to make this area safer. We have our home for sale and have had comments that having this half wall above the stairs with nothing above it was not safe for children. That is when I decided to build these cubbies and install them on top of the half walls to keep anyone from jumping/falling over into the stairwell. the one thing I would of done differently would be to use screws to attach the polypropylene back instead of nails. the reason being that as I mounted the cubbies in the openings it pulled to one side popping the back off the nails with no easy way to fix this being over stairs. Overall the project served the purpose and looks nice and will provide storage and decoration.
