I know this is an old post now, but I have just come across it... and very impressed. I have been wanting to have something in my bedroom that can store shoes under, near the bed and provide something to put my feet up on while doing them up. The bottom part of this project would be just the thing for that.
I currently pull the bottom drawer of my bedside table out and put my foot on it, but this will be much better. Maybe I will make a small footstool to slide under, or store on top of it. Thanks @Tara86 for the inspiration.
@TedBear I’m so glad to hear it’s been able to provide ideas for your project! Ha ha wow it feels like a long time ago. Still going strong just used in a spare room for the kids to store spare bags, hats and shoes. Best of luck
