Looks like a place for everything, and a good place to put shoes on. Great build.

Nice build, if the wife’s happy everybody’s happy.

I love the contrasting colors, especially on the face frames…care to share what you selected for wood & finish?

Shell is 3/4 plywood and face and top are pine. Painted shell brown and pine is pecan color stain with Minwax Polycrylic finish.. Would use MDF for shell if i was to make another.

Wally very nice design and great craftsmanship. You noted that you would use MDF for shelf if you build another one. What happens in the winter when someone puts wet shows on either shelf? I want to build one for my daughter’s home where they have way too many shoes, and they come in to the house wet. I have been thinking of using 14” ceramic tile, sloped to the front with a drainage system. It snows a lot in Michigan.
