About This Project

pine, plywood, trim, furring strips

My husband, who is otherwise amazing and free of bad habits, always set his work bag, jacket, lunch box, keys, and more on the kitchen table. Our house does not have a coat closet, entryway, or any sort of nook near the door, so I used the only available space in our kitchen to craft a locker for his stuff. There's a cut-out for a light switch (deck light) and an outlet, which made it easy to craft a charging station on the middle shelf. The dog food and water is on the bottom, with a rubber mat beneath them. His hats and lunchbox go on the top shelf. Now we're both happy!
