Storage Bench and Upcycled French Door

The idea started with blank wall and the free door I got. I wanted to pair function with utility, so I cut, sanded, and stained a pine board up on top. Fastening it with decorative corbels gave it a little flair! I custom designed the bench to fit the length of the door and the size of my baskets so they would easily slide in and out. A few pocket holes, some stain and a bit of poly later, it all came together! There are hooks for leashes, hats and bags and the window frames have magnets on them for family snapshots we acquire along the way!
