While you can buy all kinds of shoe racks, few if any include a bench that is handy for putting on your shoes. Now you can make a sturdy one that stores your favorite pairs and offers you a comfy place to sit down. Start by cutting and measuring the boards as shown, making sure that they fit together properly. Cover both sides of each board with adhesive paper. These will form the interior shelves of the unit. Next, cut and glue together the wood pieces for the main part of the structure. When it’s dry, insert the interior section and flip the whole thing over to attach the legs. Turn it back over and screw the sides to the back and the ends of the interior shelf. Now, take a board that fits the top of the unit and cover one side with foam and then fabric, wrapping the material over and onto the back. Be sure to make neat corners before stapling it in place. Using wood glue, attach the top to the rest of the unit. Let it dry and it’s ready. Place it near the door so that you can easily access and put on your favorite shoes.
