DIY Plans - Mudroom Locker with Bench - Rogue Engineer 1 (1)

Our coat rack in our entryway has gotten out of control lately and this has been a project that I’ve wanted to tackle for a long time. We have a pretty narrow entryway off the garage door so I decided to add a large set of mudroom lockers with a bench in the garage. This is typically where we take off our shoes and such anyways so it seemed appropriate. I finally settled on a style and what I wanted in the way of storage. With the two huge drawers we plan on using one for toys and one for the kids shoes. Since there are four of us each on of us has a hook and a cubby. Plus there are extra hooks and upper storage to house a lot of extra stuff. Well, I’m really happy with how it turned out. It’s exactly what we needed to wrangle our entryway.

Finishing

I really like the stained wood and white paint combo. Before finishing I filled all the nail holes with wood filler and sanded all the surfaces to 220-grit. For the paint I used polished pearl from Behr with a semi-gloss finish to clear up easily. For the stained wood I used Varathane Dark Walnut and sealed with Varathane’s Triple Thick Semi-Gloss Polyurethane.

    Shouldn’t the Plywood description on the top of the cut list read 3/4″ x 48″ x 96″ (now it reads 3/4″ x 24″ x 48″)
    Good job. Looks very nice.

    I loved this plan and am super excited to share my project. Made some modifications, but technique and structure were all based on your plans. Awaiting more baskets for the top section. I went to the ceiling in my mudroom and used crown molding to finish the top off. Also had to work around switches and alarm pad. Used a 5/4″ piece of pine stained and poly’d for the top (actually it is 2 pieces that I joined together with glue and pocket screws – you actually can’t tell).

    • WOW! that looks awesome. Thanks for sharing. Glad to see people take my plans and make it work for their needs. Turned out great!

      Anyway you can send the dimensions of this and what you changed and how much extra wood you needed via email? amberbreidel@gmail.com

        Did you ever get the dimensions of the modified project? I’d love to do the same but it would be super helpful to have more info.

    Hi, I’m pretty new to working with wood and really appreciate these plans. They are an excellent tool! I have one question: on the cut list the drawer divider is 23 1/2 inches long, but on step 1 of the assembly detail its listed as 26 3/4 inches long. The piece I cut at 23 1/2 definitely doesn’t fit so I think the detail measurement of 26 3/4 is the right one.

    Should I try to join a piece to my divider to get to 26 3/4 inches since it’s an interior piece or go out and buy another sheet of plywood and cut it correctly?

    Thanks again for the plans and for the advice!

      the drawer divider and the locker divider are both different dimensions. Wish I figured that out before making all the cuts! Ah well, more scrap to fix mistakes with!

    Your plans inspired me to fill my back room entrance – Made a simple shoe rack / coat hanger / seat 🙂
    Thanks for the encouraging plans !!
