Jaime from Thats My Letter wanted to create a storage solution for her mudroom to contain and corral shoes, hats, gloves, etc. Jaime paired up with Crates & Pallets to make sure each area of the bench could perfectly fit a cute wooden crate. Her blog features the full plans and downloadable, printable PDF versions so you can easily make your own mudroom storage bench. Jaime painted her bench a pretty deep blue, similar to an LL Bean storage bench in Midnight blue, but you could paint yours any color or even stain it for a more natural look!
This is Jaime’s finished storage bench, complete with crates!
Here is the LL Bean Painted Cottage Mudroom Bench, retailing for $299:
