{Entryway} Bench Updated

Happy Wednesday! Halfway through the week! Don't you love it?!

So last week I showed you what use to be inside our entryway bench....

Once I organized all those DVDs, I had a big empty storage space! What to do....?

Since my entryway is very small, shoes end up pileing up fairly quickly. Even if there are only 3 pairs of shoes in the doorway, it starts to get a little crowded. I really wanted to do something with all those shoes!

My lightbulb clicked on when I saw Jen's bench makeover.

My bench is a little smaller than Jen's, but I knew I could make it work!

I went to the dollar store and picked up a boot mat and 4 small bags of river rocks.
Yup...only 5 dollars for this whole update!

I placed the mat inside the bench and added the river rocks.

Then added the shoes that were lying near the door.

Ahhhh...a place to make the shoes disappear! LOVE IT!

What do you think?

    1. Hope you got my email with all the ideas on where to find the entryway bench!

  3. This is a wonderful idea. I actually have a plastic mat sitting in my hallway. Now all I need are rocks to fill it.

    I stumbled across your blog via Pinterest and loved reading about your projects and inspiration. I look forward to checking out future posts!

    1. So glad you stopped by! Don't you just love the river rocks? I do!

  4. I love this bench and how you revamped it. Where did you buy it originally?
