We needed some major help storing coats, boots, shoes, gloves, etc. My wife liked the look of the things you could buy from Pottery Barn and other stores like it…but I didn’t like the prices. They were pretty easy to build – my own design. Size was based on the bins my wife purchased. It’s all 3/4” ply with poplar trim, painted white. The aluminum skids were added after the fact because heavy use was wearing the paint off the bench. The bench cushion was ordered on-line from a custom cushion maker. Between the bins, cushion, wood and paint, there’s about $300 invested in it. Much better than then $900 major retailers wanted.

Nice project. You got a much better product building it yourself than you would have gotten from pottery barn.

Great looking and functional build. Well crafted and way better than the store bought ones. It will surely serve the whole family for a long time. Great work!
