Storage Bench

Loved using the plans, had to modify them to work around my baskets and a pipe sticking out of my wall. I'd say this is somewhere between beginner and intermediate, as I had to use the pocket screw for some added support when attaching the sides. I primed then used two coats of white "door and trim" paint. So far it has held up to the baskets being slid back and forth, if I had to do it again, I would add a poly coat for durability, at least on the bottom of the cubbies. Cushions and pillow from HomeGoods. Would have been nice to design the bench to fit more standard cushion sizes, but oh well!
