Farmhouse Hall Tree

Made this based off some pictures I'd seen online and the mudroom bench with simple drawers plan. Modified for my needs of course. The large drawer is perfect for my kiddos' shoes and boots and really helps cut down on clutter. The back I framed with 1x4s and 1x2s and the horizontal pieces are 1/4" tongue and groove. I figured the height based off those pieces so I wouldn't have to rip any down. I put the lower hooks on for my little ones to reach to hang their coats.

Finish Used
I used white paint for most of it. Did varathane briarsmoke and then minwax dark walnut stain over it. Then I sanded it to get a distressed look in the seat part and covered it all in poly. Very happy with results! I don't count the stain, paint and poly in the cost some I already had those :)
