Hello to all the House of Frost readers, and thanks so much to Chris for having me! The post I'm sharing today was actually written by my husband, Dave--one of his two blog posts ever!--detailing how he built a bench with a shelf for storing shoes for our foyer. It was a pretty simple project, but making it ourselves meant we could get it exactly the size we needed for the space and finish it however we wanted. We made a coat rack with lots and lots of hooks (we have four kids, so we can never have too many hooks) at the same time.
You can read where I talk about the non-bench building parts of the whole project here, and you can read my nine month later update on how it's working for us here. The part where it's Dave writing starts......now!
