So first things first. I needed to gut the baseboards. Oh boy! It was quite NASTY! Tod enjoyed it though! LOL I don’t know what it is with cats and spiders! Yes those are the colors our walls used to be. Which brings me to say if you’re wondering why there’s so much cob webs under these baseboards lets just say this home is 50+ years old and wasn’t exactly built properly! Meaning non of the baseboards were sealed with caulking. AT ALL!! Which lead to nice little spider homes that grew and multiplied.
This is where I forgot to take photos again. My apologies. We added a 2×3 beam in the middle of the bench and added the lid to one half of it with door hinges. The other half of the bench closer to the wall doesn’t open. (To clarify the shelf in front of the bench with the shoes laying against it was just me making measurements and it was caught in action sorry It has nothing to do with the bench. ) My video has pretty clear instructions on making this bench. Don’t forget to watch it.
