How much weight can this box hold for sitting on?

If I wanted to give it a stained wood look, how would I go about it?

Can it be built on feet instead of mounted to the wall?

Thanks so much,

What I like about this design is that it makes a very strong box/shelf. I plan to modify this design to make some bench/storage for our dining room/home office/sewing room. This design should be strong enough to sit on or mount on a wall. Add some doors on the front with tracks on the inside of the outer box. Should be very adaptable for different uses.

Our daughter is planning to use them as book shelves in their new home while husband is back in school and they will have boxes to move the books after school is finished. Great idea!
