DIY ENTRY STORAGE
YOU WILL NEED White enamel paint
2 x 180cm x 45cm x 19mm laminated pine panels
(for the top and bottom, 45cm deep for the seat)
2 x 120cm x 45cm x 16mm laminated pine panels
(will give 4 x side panels, so there will be three cubes) PVA glue
Drill and screws
5.4m x 66cm x 18mm piece of primed pine moulding
2 x white, pre-primed internal hollow-core doors 4 x pre-primed finger jointed pine battens
4 x 110mm chrome coat and hat hooks
2 x 150mm chrome door pulls (to represent old door handles on the doors)
3 x cube storage baskets
STEP ONE Undercoat and paint the pine panels and doors, leave to dry.
STEP TWO Measure and cut the 120cm x 45cm x 16mm pine panels to make the cube sides. Assemble cubes by attaching the side panels to the top and bottom panels with PVA glue and screws to secure. Add the skirting detail (pine moulding) to the base.
STEP THREE Next, join the two doors by screwing timber battens to the back and attach to the cubes. Touch up the paint where required and sand back here and there for a rustic look.
STEP FOUR Screw in hooks and chrome door pulls as decorative door handles and place storage baskets into the cubes to finish.
