Mudroom Bench Project...Merry Xmas to my wife

My wife has been wishing for a place for all of us to be able to take off our shoes so we (mostly me) aren't tracking mud through the house or leaving our shoes, jackets, etc laying around.  So I presented the idea to her and she was on board.  I think for me not being a professional whatsoever it really turned out is the step by step process, it took about 10 days working on it when I could..Merry Christmas Kelli!
