IKEA Hack - Shoe Box

I bought a 3 IKEA Children storage bench when it was $19. We are moving to a new place and I decided to use one of the bench as a shoe box to be placed outside our house.

I added a handle to the cover and hinges so the kids can easily lift up the cover with the handle and not having to carry the cover. I also added legs to the base of the box so it will not be soaked in water when the town council do their regular washing.

As the wood was untreated, I painted it in white. The decals seen were previously on my mirror. I removed them and reused them on the box.

The wire shelves in the box are actually freestanding shelf insert for cabinet. They are placed in the box as shoe shelves. All accessories used were bought from Daiso.
