We created this large L-shaped bench for the mudroom of a Fernie vacation home to help organize ski boots, gear, and clothing. The client was looking for a piece that was rustic and in keeping with the style of the home, but would stand apart from the existing woodwork.
The combination of wood and steel worked perfectly with the rustic slate floor and existing woodwork.
The thick rustic top will stand up well to wear and tear!
We used expanded metal for the shelves to allow boots to dry, and the shelves are removable for easy cleaning of the tiles.
A storage drawer with expanded metal bottom for air circulation provides extra storage for hats, mitts, and scarves.
