This DIY shoe rack bench is very simple to make and cost about $30 of material. It’s very sturdy and could also be used as a bench for seating. Our boys keep their backpacks, books and lunch boxes stacked on top so that they don’t forget to grab it before they leave to school.

Ana, I wanted to point out a mis-print in this plan. Your site says 2x6 and with 3 across it is supposed to be 16 1/2" wide. The link to the diy plan calls for 2x4s and 2x6. Please fix this to prevent someone else having to do a second wood run. Thank you :)
