DIY Custom White Storage Bench Furniture
White Storage Bench – Storage benches are the ideal piece of furniture for a front porch, pool or deck as they provide seating while you remove your shoes as well as a place to store them off site. While a portal is a traditional place for a storage bank, the bank would not be out of place in a bedroom, living room or kitchen and would certainly come handy.
Instructions: Form two 15-inch planks of 16-inch plywood and two 16-inches by 48-inch planks a rectangular box with the smaller ends contiguous within the edges of the larger pieces to make the corners of the box. Attach the splices to the corner of the carton and secure with 3-inch 1 5/8 screws spaced evenly through each joint. Center on one side of a 40-inch piano hinge on the 48-inch edge of a 17-inch piece of 48-inch plywood, which is the top of the white storage bench.
Attach the hinge to the cover with 1/2-inch screws. Center the lid of the box, it will have a 1/2-inch lip in the front and secure the other half of the hinge to the back panel of the box. Paint the box and lid and leave to dry according to the paint manufacturer’s instructions. Locate the wall studs where you want to install the white storage bench.
