Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. It is also advisable to review the Getting Started Section. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain. Be safe, have fun, and ask for help if you need it. Good luck!
Notch out hutch sides as desired.
It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed.

I come home and my military uniform gets spread out everywhere. This would make the perfect uniform organizer!

Hi Ana! I love your site and all of your projects! I recently completed the Farm House King Head/Foot board and absolutely LOVE IT! Working on one for my son's room now as well.
I am trying to find plans for something very similar to this hall tree, although I would like it to slide into a corner. Have you done anything similar or do you have any recommendations for altering the above plans to make a corner hall tree? I am thinking about using the Corner Unit for the twin storage bed and add the top piece to it - what are your thoughts on that? Thanks in advance!

Love It, but...
Pictures can be deceiving. :) It looks so tall! But actually I'm taller (6'1")
BTP (By the Plan) the piece will only come out to be just a 1/4" over 6 foot high from bottom of base to top of hutch.
So I'm adding a foot to its height (6" to the bench, 6" to the hutch) to push it up a bit and make it feel less like a dwarf on a standard 8' ceiling.
Such a gorgeous design and beadboard all the way!

Easy plan to alter
I made this and the accompanying bench this weekend. The instructions are clear and easy to follow. Assembly is a snap!
I agree that the piece is deceptively short. I added 13 1/4" to the height of the sides and created 2 shelves instead of one. Now it looks much more substantial on my entry wall.
My hubby loves it...no more mess in our entryway.

I love this hutch. great job guys.
Is it possible to receive a copy of the SketchUp file for customization?

I was wondering if it was…
I was wondering if it was possible for this project to be shortened up width wise to 32" wide because in my home we have base board heat so those are in the way, so to make it fit our space it would have to be 32" wide, any suggestions?
