Since our house has a split level entry Kristin and I use the basement access door to the garage whenever we come or go. This has left us with a large pile of shoes, coats, etc. in this area. Additionally, the only place to actually sit and put-on/take-off your shoes is on the office chair located on the other side of the room…which just wasn’t working.
So I came up with this idea of building a bench that could address both problems. It would provide both storage and a seating area. Here’s a slideshow of my progress thus far. A few more details to work out and then I should be ready to start construction.
