    Your video inspired me to build an entry bench with a shoe-rack and a matching mirror-frame. I made the depths of the bench a little narrower, but used your measurement for the rest. Thank you for sharing your great ideas!

      Wow, thank you so much for sharing your project with me Rie! I love it! I love the addition of the shoe rack to the bench and the mirror looks great too! Do you mind if I share it with others on FB and Pinterest? I know they will be inspired with your project as well. Thanks again for sharing!
