I wanted a bench by the back door... ADDED NEW PICS

 ..so I made one.

Before (an old shelf we had in the basement)

After

  

cost - $4 for the plywood for the seat, everything else was leftovers from other projects

I wanted to keep a middle shelf more for stability (keep it from twisting) than for function.  I did decide though, once I had it in the house, to invert the middle shelf to gain a little more space above it, now it fits our slippers perfectly. Turns out that finishing both sides was a good idea...

 Okay, I know it's not perfect, but I did it with no help at all.  And the blue stain doesn't look great in the garage but it looks really cute in the house with the baskets on the bottom for kids hats & mitts.  I'll add a pic tomorrow of it inside.

That's looks really good you took one thing and made another. You would pay 30 bucks for something with a name slapped on it, that look similar
