Well, I am pleased with this. I made these storage benches from IKEA shelf parts and lumber. I am visualizing cushions on top and baskets below. Currently, the storage part is a mish mash of bins found in the garage, and the ones that used to be in the amoire on the porch. This porch is screened in, and nicely shaded, so I am looking forward to having a place to sit and have a cold drink this summer.
