Boot storage is always tricky.  Boots can take up alot of space, and often need to be laid flat or upside down to protect the leather uppers.

For our hall, we needed some extra shoe storage – but since the space is in the hall, I wanted the storage to blend, and look more like a basic bench than a workhorse storage piece.  

So I designed and we built this simple looking bench.  But of course, there’s more!

The front apron is really a drawer face, and inside, you can store up to four pairs of full size boots!  You can also use the drawer for storing shoes, scarves, gloves – you name it!  Or you can use the project as a coffee table and store remote controls, magazines and board games (of course without the slatted drawer bottom).  

We loved this project so much we even devoted a video to making it –

Since we know you’ll be wanting to build it to, the free plans are below.  

Please share a finished photo when you are done – we love seeing your projects!
