DIY Pallet Shoe Storage Bench ($32.13)
With the onset of winter I have been drooling over some sort of shoe storage in our house. Right now, shoes get left at the door and I end up tripping over them every time I walk in. I can’t imagine with winter, not only will I be tripping over them but I will be stepping in pools of water too!
I HATE wet socks!
I began looking online for a shoe storage bench. I found something like this for $112.
Or I found this one, which is super cute, but a little out of my budget.
I fell in love! It would be so nice to have a coat rack, some storage, and a shoe bench in my mud room!
However, I know my husband, and he would probably say that we really don’t need it for that price. So one day, I decided that I could build my own. As of late, I have been obsessed with wooden pallet furniture. I thought that some pallets would make a great shoe storage bench….and they did! So here are the directions if you would like to build your own storage bench.
Finally, my mud room coat and shoe storage is complete!
We have had several people over since building it and I have actually had to convince people that this bench was built from pallets. It’s a great way to use up some old pallets and add less to our dumps. Plus, it’s cheap and easy!
Now onto the next project, which will look something like this:

So awesome Beth. That looks amazing!
I do not know how you do not have a hundred comments on this! It is absolutely gorgeous! I am heading over to find a follow button! (wink)
Where do you get your pallets? Thanks! Awesome project!!
I got the pallets from our local lumber yard. I think if I were you I would look for businesses who have them stacked up and see if they want to get rid of any. To some businesses, they are just a pain.
I love this. I was doing the same thing as you, searching all over the place for affordable shoe storage. Thank you SO much!!
Glad you like it! We use it all the time and I am really glad how it turned out. Let me know how yours turns out! Best cheap, bench I have found yet!
Love this! it is amazing!
I absolutely LOVE this idea! I know it was a while ago now, but do you by chance remember the brand and color stain you used? It’s perfect. Thanks for sharing this cool idea!!
I used just a normal mahogany stain and then used Varathane stain and polyurethane in one in mahogany to coat over the top. I hate painting on polyurethane!
This was impressive. A shoe storage bench is a must if you have a family.
It keeps things so much neater.
What color is the stain? It looks great!
The color of stain is mahogany from Minwax
Just for the record, what a fantastic idea!! It looks beautiful. And it’s from pallets… hahaha. Thanks for sharing.
This is great – you gave me a really nice roadmap to do this with, I’m going to send you a picture of mine when it’s done.
Thanks for doing this!
Just for future reference, when installing fasteners(nails, screws, etc) into wood, the fastener needs only to be about 2.5 times the thickness of the wood.
Example: for a 1×4 board, a 2.5 inch fastener is more than enough…for a 2×4, a 4 inch fastener is the minimum length you should use.
There are exceptions to this rule, but this is just a general rule of thumb to go by.
ow, as for my opinion of this project.
You have outdone yourself Madam.
it is nothing short of gorgeous!
And I can tell by the way you built it, that this is something you can pass down to your children/grandchildren.
Were it me that had made this, I’d be bragging about this for the next 6 months to a year! LOL
Thank you for sharing this with all of us.
May you have a very Merry Christmas!!
Would it be difficult to take out a couple of rows in the middle to make it possible to store boots? Or would that weaken it structurally? This is beautiful!
You might be able to take out a few of the middle supports but yes the structure would be weaker. I honestly think it would work though. I guess if it breaks, it’s only a pallet and you could just cut up another one! Thanks for checking out our blog!
Great! Well done! Put it on the list…
Fantastic idea, I’m building one this weekend. Just a thought, would probably be easier to sand the pallets before you join them together. Likewise staining the inside would be much easier before assembly. For people who don’t have a circular saw and don’t want the added expense of buying one. Remember you can have boards cut at your local hardware store. Home Depot, Lowes. They won’t rip a 2×4, but you can buy a 2×2 and let them cut that. Just a thought.
That is an expectional work you have done. Warehouse Storage Systems are very helpful at times. Thanks for sharing this. Keep exploring.
That looks fantastic, I think I’m going to try my hand at building one of these. Thanks for the inspiration
Great job:). I will try to find some pallets and get to work. Lol
