{Not so} Wordless Wednesday: Yep. I Built This.

 
Trust me, this isn’t going to turn into a furniture building blog. 
 
For Christmas, Dave demo’ed a  front coat closet we had.  It was an annoying closet because the edge of it – just about 1/4 of an inch at the bottom – prevented the front door from opening back all the way.  Since, we don’t really come up the front steps in the wintery months, the coat closet wasn’t really used for more than stuffing junk in. 
 
So he busted it out of the house, and now I have this nice little nook that needed a bench to put purses and bags on.  So I found a simple bench to build at Ana White.
 
 

The top opens up and we can put gloves and hats and stuff in it.  I went funky and stained the bottom this blue-ish color, and I wanted a darker black-ish stain on the top.  I like how it turned out!  Next up is a wall rack to hold coats and mail.  I hope it will look like this, but I’ll put some of the blue stain on it as an accent:
