I read your blog and all your modifications and love the changes that you made. I have a very small area with a bench and a coat tree that could benefit from this solution. Thanks for posting.

Just stopped by your profile - guess you already got out your tools! Love that RED ladder shelf and creative use of steel sheets for the sides on that planter. PS - Can I borrow your miter saw, I'm dying, dying to get one. Someday.

LOVE this. White with a rich deep wood top is my absolute favorite! Love that you flanked the door on each side with matching ones. Looks like it's right out of a design magazine. Also liked that your blog shows details on how you attached the tops to the bottoms. I want to swipe these for my house! ;) J

That looks great. It's inspired me, and I'm going to attempt to build it as well. Was on the Pottery Barn website and placed an order, but they are on back order until December 15th. Just hope it does not take that long for me to build it!!
