It has the look of a custom built-in, but it’s unbelievably easy and economical to build. Build a Basic Bench. At the heart of this entryway makeover is a storage bench that’s the perfect place for kicking off your shoes. It has a slide-out tray to keep them organized and storage inside for other gear. Best of all, the bench is made from an inexpensive unfinished cabinet plus a few pieces of plywood. We’ll walk you through putting one together. Above the bench is a row of hooks that allow you to hang coats and bags so they’re accessible but out of the way. Tying it all together is a traditional wall treatment consisting of V-grooved car siding, horizontal boards, and a bit of molding. It’s simple, too, since it’s made with off-the-shelf materials.. Add Finally, we’ll show you how we created the traditional look of this entryway, and we’ll offer up options in case you’d like to organize your entry in a slightly different style.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
