Important Notes:
The bench is 13in in height and 3ft in length. As I stated in the video, you can always get more benches, use a thicker/longer board, buy a board made from real wood etc. This is totally customizable!

Products Used:

2 Unfinished Wood Crates
*Make sure you use a coupon with them to get them for a cheaper price! Jo-Ann Fabrics has coupons available direct from the site and in their app. If you wait til they have a 60% off coupon, you can get the crates for $5.20 each.*

White Shelving Board (3ft long)
*From Menards. It’s 11 3/4 x 3ft I can’t find the exact one I got online. You can find boards like these at other hardware stores.

Rust-Oleum Flat White Spray Paint
*Purchased mine at Menards but you can find this pretty much anywhere spray paint is sold.

Gorilla Wood Glue
*Optional of course! I didn’t use this but if you want the board not to move around, use wood glue as an easy adhesive. You can always nail, screw etc but for those of you who don’t want the hassle or don’t own the proper tools, wood glue will do.

I didn’t comment in enough time but I wanted to say you give me hope that I can recreate your beautiful works because I want a space for me to get away from my kids and my husband to beautify myself. My husband and I lack our own personal space and you give me inspiration it can happen. I love you Bethany you make believe in something and I love you Baragin Family I read just about all the comments I can and you guys make the dream work! Love you all!

Great idea! I wanna make this for my room, but use the bottom shelf as a shoe rack.

catgirldo says:

‘sit on them and see what happens” Bwhahahahah – you are crafty and funny. This is a great idea for the end of a kid’s bed to store their shoes or toys or books. Love the white.
