About This Project

I've officially stopped stalking and started building! First project a modified spa bench. Still have to stain it, but it already makes the big pile of shoes by the door look neater! I'm a hands-on person and not afraid of power tools (got a band saw for my birthday!) but it's still a challenge building a piece of furniture. I've already learned lots of do's and don't do's for next time!
Thanx a bunch for your site, Ana! It definitely gets the mind plotting great projects to come!

Required Skill Level: 
Estimated Time Investment: 
Day Project (6-9 Hours)

PolyShades Royal Mission, several coats... and a spray can of clear coat too.
Estimated Cost: 
~50$ (honestly, I can't remember!)


This is awesome! Never thought about modifying the spa bench, but this is perfect for that always-menacing pile of shoes. Hey... I might have to build one for my closet! Thanks for sharing!

The road to success is always under construction.

This is really cool. I think I may try something similar. Was the height of the shelf the only modification you made?
