And then two coats of paint:
I added a third coat of paint and then 3 coats of polyurathane to protect it, but forgot to take a picture when I was all done! And now the bench is under a pile of boxes in the corner of our living room where we're storing everything for the move, so unfortunately I can't take picture of it completely finished.
We decided to make a simple board with a bunch of hooks to go over the bench instead of the hook/shelf system on Ana White's plans. We thought it would be too top heavy with the shelves and stick too far out in our cramped room. So this was much easier! Lots of coats of paint and polyurathane and 7 hooks later it's all done:
We love them!
