Elizabeth, June 13th, 2013. Decoration, DIY Tips to Make a Shoe Storage Bench.
Having a shoe storage bench at your home or apartment certainly can be a good idea, since a shoe storage bench is versatile and dual function furniture that can be used both as storage space for your shoes (hence the ‘storage’) and as a seating (hence the ‘bench’). Don’t worry – you don’t have to always buy furniture, especially if you are skillful when it comes to DIY (do-it-yourself) projects. So, here are some tips you might want to know if you want to make your own shoe storage bench.
First of all, you may need new pieces of wood boards or even you can look for unused small storage space that can still be ‘recycled’ into a new shoe storage bench. Secondly, you need to fit the size according to where you’re going to put it. Since shoe storage benches are usually put near the entryway, then the size should not be too big. The size should be enough for shoe storage space and seating. Normally, a shoe storage bench has two levels of compartments, and each of it can be used to store two to three pairs of shoes. Thirdly, if you choose to use up the unused furniture piece, then you should never forget to sand and polish, especially the upper part of the furniture which will be used as the seating. This is certainly to make your shoe storage bench a comfortable seating. Lastly, you can add a small throw pillow to make you feel more comfortable when sitting on it.
So, what do you think? If you wish to have a small storage space for your shoes that can also function as a seating, then you can always buy or make your own shoe storage bench. If you choose to make it yourself, then follow our simple tips to make your shoe storage bench look great.
