This is the entry bench that I made for my wife. We have six children, meaning coats, hats, backpacks; you name it, gets dumped everywhere. This entry piece really helped organize and clean up our entry way.
I initially started this project by making a large entry way chest/bench for extra shoes. Later, my wife and I decided to add another bench, this one including a standing wall for hooks. It also features multiple drawers for added storage. Adding another bench with extra storage was definitely a smart way to utilize our space.
