Two layers. And on wheels. It's awesome. ( yes, the pink dots are 2 different shades. I decided I like the lt. pink better, but haven't changed the inside ones yet. ) I'm trying to talk him into making another one for the boys to keep all their X-Box games in. =D SO much cheaper than buying a footstool.. and it's custom made for my needs. Most $$ was the foam needed for the cushion.
