Shoe bench and clothes rack


If you don't have mudroom, this simple shoe bench and clothes rack will do the job.

Here's how I built my shoe bench and clothes rack. I built it small to fit my space, you can build yours bigger.

Building the cloth rack:

-Cut the side part using jigsaw.
-Attach the lower shelf.
-Attach the top shelf.
-Attach back cover.
-Add shelf divider.

-Fill holes,sand and paint. Then attach the hooks and hanger.

Building the shoe bench:

-Attach the sides to the top part using pocket hole screws and glue.

-Then the middle shelf.

-Attach the bottom part.

-Attach the legs ( I used dowels and wood glue)

-Fill holes, sand and paint. Paint the door, attach to the bench and add handle.

 I made the patterned back using furring strips, this is to prevent hanged things scratching the wall paint . It's only attach to the wall (using hangers) and not to the rack or bench.

Space saver for bathroom

Need place to put toilet paper and magazines in your small bathroom? You can build one like this...

Here's how I built mine.

Make the shelf.

 Attach the back cover.
Fill holes, sand and paint.
Attach the legs.

Attach the cabinet door and knob. You can add moulding around the edge of the top and the bottom shelf to get the traditional style.
That's it!
