About This Project

We needed somewhere to store shoes and sit while changing shoes, so I built this based on the flip top storage bench plans at http://ana-white.com/2012/10/plans/flip-top-storage-bench-new-plans

Total length of the project was 6 feet, so I added a 1x3 support at the middle. I made the storage top deeper so that it would hold adult shoes by using 1x6s instead of 1x4s.

I made the top into two "doors" so that they would be smaller and easier for our children to handle. I also rounded off the front edge with my router to make it easier on bottoms and shins.

Estimated Cost: 
$50
Estimated Time Investment: 
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Required Skill Level: 
Intermediate
Type of Wood: 
pine whitewood boards
Finish Used: 
Finish was with MinWax prestain conditioner and MinWax Gunstock stain according to label directions, then 3 coats of polycrylic with light sanding between the coats.

This is beautiful!

You've done a beautiful job. I like the extra length and how you divided the top so it's not so unwieldy.
