Entryway cubbies built and complete.
One on either side of the front door.
My version of this system from Pottery Barn:
This family of five was using this:
And now each child has their own space:
Complete with labeled baskets to hold shoes, etc:
To see how I made the chalkboard name labels click here.
I modified plans from Ana White here for the base bench portion.
I added the additional hooks in the lockers:
The hooks are polished chrome to match the front door hardware:
Here's a few progress pics of the bench portion:
1. Base complete:
(those skinny scrap wood pieces across the middle are holding the sides square until I add another 1x2 at the upper back)
2. Painted one coat primer, two coats semi gloss white:
3. Top piece was stained one coat Minwax dark walnut, 3 coats satin poly.
Added top piece by screwing down through top, screws are hidden by side and middle divider pieces of locker portion.
Locker portion is only 12" deep therefore screws cannot go past 12" and absolutely must be flush.
4. Carefully place top portion on base so as not to scratch finish.
Secure top to base using 1" L brackets in front corners:
and mending plates on back:
5. Add baskets to complete.
Up top smaller baskets for hats, gloves, etc.
These base sections have no backing, it isn't really necessary but more importantly there is open access to the electrical outlets:
Looks like they were meant to be there all along.
Thanks beach friend for a great project.
