Nesting Box Storage Plans Nesting Box Storage Plans

Most modern house designs call for a “mud room” or entry hallway that often includes a boot bench, some locker style storage, or a cubby for random items.  The following is a simple plan from Cottage Life Magazine that lays out a simple way to build an attractive set of cubbies (cubby’s?? spelling?).  These are a great item and are inexpensive to build.  Pick the right paint and distress the finish a bit and you will have a piece that looks like it was built 50 years ago.

This plan is essentially a shelf with some vertical dividers along with front piece that makes it function much better than a shelf.  The simple triangle detail holds the items in place and gives a look that fits in an entry mudroom, garage, or even a laundry room.

You can see by the cut list below that there isn’t a great deal to it.  Click the picture for the full plans.

Good luck building your own.
