DIY Shoe Bench

2 Days

Oh, the shoe pile by the front door- my nemesis! Always spreading out all the way down the hall, creating tripping hazards by the stairs and sometimes making it so I can't open the front door! Here's my solution!
Do you have a similar sight at your house?
I found an Ana White plan that I adjusted slightly and picked up all my supplies from the hardware store.
I used pocket holes to attach the shelves to the sides, and then to attach all the trm pieces too.
The actual top piece got a Dark Walnut stain.
And the base is painted Behr Aqua Mist.
Isn't this so much better? What color do you want to paint one? And would you do anything differently for this project? (For a complete cut list, visit the blog link below)
