This DIY tutorial will show you how to build a quick and easy yet strong and beautiful DIY Crate Cabinet with Sliding Drawers.

He uses three of them stacked on one another as bookshelves in his room. I think he would really like this piece and making it would be a great woodworking project for him.
These crates corral and contain all the shoes, hats, gloves and mudroom accessories plus the bench provides a generous spot to sit while putting on those shoes. The shoe storage bench fits just inside our back-door mudroom area. You could adjust these plans for a shorter bench, maybe your space will accommodate just two or three crates and that would be perfect.
Do you always lose your keys? To be quite honest, I used to lose my keys all the time because I didn’t have a proper place for them to live. I’ve seen all types of systems, but I think I like the hanging system the best. Keys in a bowl tend to get tangled up with other stuff, which makes them easy targets to get lost in a junk pile. With this organization system from Planq-studio, the keys are cleverly hidden at the back of an artwork. You won’t see it in plain sight especially when the front entry is the first impression of the home.
