If you have room in your entry for a table and need some flexible storage space, you should make your own DIY entry table with cubby storage!  We are big fans of an organized entryway and coat closet area, and we love the flexible storage that large cubbies give our growing family. When we needed some additional storage in our home, we knew we wanted to design something that would fit the large 13″ storage bins we love from IKEA, but with a less boxy style than the popular KALLAX shelf (even with the style boost we gave it here). We combined the storage we wanted with a sleeker mid-century modern profile to build this DIY entry table with cubby storage. The 4 fixed cube shelves fit large cube storage bins. The closed cabinet features 2 adjustable shelves, give us so much hidden storage space that is still … Read More

Battens (vertical boards): In the past we have used 1×4 or 1×2’s that are the same thickness as the upper and lower molding, but this time I wanted the battens to be small and insignificant to create a light texture. At our local Home Depot they had some 3 3/4″ x 1/4″ thick unpainted … Read More
