Default Mini Blanket Chest - which base type?

I made a mini blanket chest. The original design calls for a rectangular corner mitered skirt base in 1 x 2 inch pine with an ogee or rounded top edge.

I was thinking possibly separate base feet for all four corners. I could leave the bottom plain but think it needs a little dressing up.

I usually use my Katie Jig for chest dovetails but actually used the Akeda on this one.

Another nice chest, Greg

if you go for the separate base feet, make sure you add some corner blocks behind the feet for strength.
