Cubby Bench and Storage Shelf w/ Hooks

Submitted by vpihoney on Thu, 05/05/2011 - 10:56

This was my first build! I first stumbled upon plans for the cubby bench while Googling storage options =)

I combined plans from the Perfect Cubby Bench and Entryway Storage Shelf with Coat Hooks. I made slight changes to the dimensions; most of them were intentional. Both are only 36" which is perfect for my small space which doubles as the back-door entryway and laundry room. It manages the abundance of clutter created by a two kids and my husband.

I have shopped and shopped for the perfect entryway solution for this small space. Never have I found one until I came across the plans on this website.

Thank you, Ana! You've given me an excuse to start building...I had all the tools...just needed the motivation =) Now I have a ton of plans to get me started!

From a stay-at-home mom only one year into the job, I have discovered a new sense of personal enjoyment! The crafting, cooking, etc. is great and all, but this is my kinda thing!
