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 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 with you today!
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:
Dun dun dunnnnn…
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, grab the plans and start building!
*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.
