Do you make New Year’s resolutions? Instead of resolutions, I set goals for myself. I find that by setting goals, I can envision a finish line which makes it more attainable in my mind. Resolutions are far too abstract for my lady brain to comprehend. Goals are concrete. Goals have a target.
Getting organized is one of my goals this year and with a brand new slate, it’s the perfect time to start. I designed and built this DIY storage bench with the new year in mind and am sharing the complete building plans at RYOBI Nation.
But this cute little bench has a not-so-little secret, you guys. Here, let me take all that crap off, so you can actually see this thing:

She’s more than just a pretty face. She has a flip-top seat with plenty of storage space for hats, gloves, scarves, or boots!
If you’d like to build this DIY storage bench for yourself, visit RYOBI Nation for the full how-to!
*Edit: I added a 1×2 board to the 1×12 seat/lid to create a slight overhang – this is not in the original plans.
