Those look great. I’ve been needing to put something in our mudroom for a long time now (the metal snap-together shelves just aren’t cutting it). How wide front-to-back are the seats? I was wondering how much extra space the seat would need to accommodate both a person and the hanging items so it didn’t feel like you were sitting under a wet raincoat when untying your shoes.

Any chance you have more photos? Thanks for posting!

Hey, just sent a link to your project for my wife to look at as an idea for our mudroom. Her response – “Oh my god yes!!!! I love it!!!!”

Sounds like my honey-do list just grew by one set of mudroom cubbies.

Looks great! I’m building something similar for my master bedroom closet. Did you build yours in place and then spray it? If so, how tough is it to get paint on the back of the shelves?

Looks great!

I’m on the hook to build a set of cubbies in our mud room and this looks like a great jumping-off point. Any chance you could share any details on cut list, dimensions, etc?

We’re brainstorming and seeing this will really help narrow down our design.

Thanks for sharing!

I built these cubbies in place and then brushed on an oil based primer and than 2 coats of a semi-gloss. As for the dimensions the whole built-in is 14’ long, 8’ tall. the seat is 24” off the floor the “open” is around 5’ (cant really remeber ill have to try to find my sketch). each cubbie is 22” wide and 13”deep. i didnt make a cut sheet for this project cause i designed it as i went. hope this helps

What type of profile do you have for the moulding on the panel?

Thanks for the reply John. Your painting skills are up there with your woodworking skills. I hope my project turns out half as good as yours.

the trim used for the panels is a 1 3/8 base cap that my local lumberyard stocks.

and i have to correct my painting statement the semi-gloss coats were sprayed on not brushed.
