We are knee deep in plans for our kitchen and the actual kitchen entryway (it's the door we enter and exit 95% of the time) has become a bit of a sticking point for me. I love everything about the rest of the kitchen, but I just cannot decide how I want our drop zone to function and look. We have this little space in the plans that would be perfect for an entryway storage bench, but I had also envisioned us having a built-in locker and bench situation for shoes, coats, book bags etc. As a family of four, we have a lot of stuff that goes in and out of our door, and I want it very organized. But I also love a pretty spot that is also functional. Decisions, decisions. Also, I totally realize this is a first world problem.

In my quest to narrow down our plan I came across a ton of AMAZING DIY entryway storage benches. I am giving you my favorites–everything from a simple wooden storage bench to a seriously amazing trunk with geometric inlay. And then, of course, my search lead me to options I could buy, because even I cannot DIY everything (don't tell Joe that please).
