Tackling our mudroom problem. We need some sort of bench system because I envision walking in this door sitting down and taking off your boots in your shoes, but with the bench you need it to be at least 18 inches, preferably 24 inches deep. Our shoes are only a foot deep. What about that wasted space behind the bench, so I've got a creative idea how we can take advantage of the otherwise wasted space at the back of the bench and still make the front very accessible for putting your shoes away easily and have a nice deep seat. This space I have to work with is a little closet area about 6 feet wide and 30 inches deep. The plan is to build a simple shoe bench: the full width, the opening, but only 12 inches deep, and I will install the shoe bench at the front.
The opening leaving about 16 inches of space behind the bench I'll then trim out at the top of the bench around the entire milk area onto that trim I'll attach some one day, two cleats the trim gives me a nice place to attach cleats. It protects the drywall around the bench to the Queen's. All ten hinge on made to fit tops. The hinge tops will rest on top of the shoe bench then. Finally, to finish off the bench I'll add some more boards. On top with this bench, I'll have easy storage for shoes and boots in the shoe bench and then hidden storage behind the shoe bench for larger boots and seasonal items. I started off by taking measurements of this space since I'm working with frame walls that are torturous Lee, never perfect. I decided to build my bench about half inches smaller than the opening. I'm sure glad I did my husband. I built the bench in the garage painting. It and hauled it in and fit it in place. It's just 1 by 12 construction. Then I secure the bench: the wall with screws. This is, of course, after shimming under the bench to make sure it sits level. We also built a trim piece for the back and the garage. I paint it and we just hauled it in and set it in place.
The hard part here is not being of the drywall. We level the trim piece and attached it, just what's in the law. So it's it's one and a half inches below the top of the bench. Then we screwed one by two queens around the back and sides. Attaching to the bottom of the trim piece now we are ready to add. The bench tops I cut. The bench tops to fit for a nice custom fit we made. Our bench tops out of our basic sports pocket altogether, I'm using the Craig Foreman to thrill. My partner, it's amazing, makes quick work of drilling the pocket holes and all I have to do is attach with pocket hole screws we stain. The bench tops with rust-oleum, early-American and then spring on two coats of wat chrome. Before then, we added hinges to the edge of the hinge up parts of the bench top, and then we attach the hinges to between piece that we attach to the wall earlier notice that, when closed, the hinge tops sit on top of the shoe bench also notice. We added a one by two support on the underside of the hinge at bench top pieces, four out of the support. We want this project to last and get lots of views to finish off the front of the bench we Punk it'll hold two 1 by 6 boards together stain and finish them in the garage I just set them in place and attached with learning a quarter inch Screws from the underside, I love how this bench turned out. It stores so much and there's no super deep shelves or stuff you'd be lost in the backup and my kids love the new hide and seek spot.
