Does anyone have a good idea (or 4!) for making/decorating a special toychest for our adult toys?  I want it to have a very sensual look, and prererrably lock.  Inexpensive is best, but I really don't feel like dumpster diving for it...hehehe  I'm considering trolling some yard sales for an old locking filing cabinet.  

I want this to be special in order to honor our playtime as well as keep it top-secret!

Hmm... Well, some craft stores (like JoAnn's or Michaels) sometimes have those unfinished wooden boxes that look like treasure chests. Might be sort of fun to decorate one and use it as a toybox. I've purchased a few footlockers that I use to store fabric that could fit what you are thinking as well - they are basically partical board, but if the inside was painted you would never know and the outside is already painted and has brass edges. I think I got mine at a local discount store like a Wal-Mart or Target or something like that.

Forgot to mention that the footlockers that I had also were already set up with a way to attach a padlock. Wish I could find a link to one, but I'm sure that they are still available at most discount stores... or if they aren't, they should be! They are damned handy. I used them all through college for moving my crap.

Thanks! I love the footlocker idea!!! I could place it at the foot of my bed like a hope chest (!!!) and tell everyone I lost the key! hehehe I bet a dollar that my Beloved takes the key with him to work so I can't access my toys without him... I could use another one just to store my yarn stash, not that it's been growing much lately...

What sort of size?

I made a fabric covered coffin shaped box out of thin plyood once.
It would easily take a lock, could be made to any size and color...

Like this.... but bigger?
