Shoe Storage Bench

Adjustable Shoe Storage Bench Are shoes cluttering your foyer, mud room, or back hallway?  This Adjustable Shoe Storage Bench can help solve the clutter and add a spot to sit down while dealing with your kicks! UPDATE:  I’ve made a new version of this bench which is longer and has 2×2 legs.  Check it out as well and see which version you like better.  You can see it at my DIY Entryway Shoe Storage Bench post. I started asking my wife what would make her life easier…other than me doing all the cooking and cleaning. One of the things she mentioned was the constant battle for the front foyer.  We have 3 little ones and they love to rip off their shoes when they come inside and toss them on the ground.  Okay, okay…I’ve been known to do that myself a time or two or twenty. Having 5 people’s shoes chilling out in the foyer is hard to keep orderly and when company is over it really adds to the clutter. The Adjustable Shoe Storage Bench is what I came up with to solve that dilemma.  It will hold 4 to 6 pairs of shoes per shelf depending upon your kiddo to adult ratio of shoes.  The bench has an adjustable shelf  that can be moved up and down about 5 inches.  It’s a great solution to clean up the pile of shoes aggravating that special mother in your life! The top is solid walnut with an oil and varnish finish.  This could easily be substituted for a different top from lumber available at the home center.  The base and shelf are made from 3/4″ plywood and 1×2 poplar boards also available at your big box, though I milled my own.  The pocket hole construction makes the assembly straight forward and easy.  The bench measures 19″ tall, 34-1/2″ wide and 16-1/2″ deep.  There are detailed plans available and you’ll actually get both this plan and the new version!
