DIY Closet to Entry Bench

First impressions are everything and hollow core bi-folding doors are not the feeling I was after for the first impression upon entering my home. Removing the closet doors and building a custom bench complete with drawers, baskets, and hooks for a beautiful, comfortable and functional space was the perfect solution. Visit my blog for more details on this and many other home projects! http://wovenhome.blogspot.com/2012/07/entry-...
