Yes for friends who think alike and love to build furniture to fit their space and needs! Today I'm so, so happy to provide plans for my friend Charlotte over at Ciburbanity for her flip top mudroom bench.
Let's start with the fact that Charlotte has 5 little ones and she still finds time to pull off this build - amazing. You absolutely must see the finished flip top bench over at her place and then come back for the plan details here.
Charlotte designed the bench to flip up which creates shallow storage in the seat for gloves, hats, scarves, etc. And below she added pull-out bins for shoes, one for each of her kids.
All the finish details and hardware information are posted over at Charlotte's place and below I have the step by step instructions for building your own flip top bench. Always follow all safety guidelines when operating power tools.
