DIY bench made from wooden crates from Michaels. Cheap and Colorful.--- whoa exactly what I had in mind! :) love this thing! I will paint it brown I think and get a cusion to go on top- perfect with some cheap shelving above it! Shoes and cushion.
By the way, I HATE the newest, cutsie, pretentious word - "up cycle" - you're being creative and reusing what would otherwise be called JUNK/TRASH! Repurpose / recycle - just call it that! Up-cycle is putting lipstick on a pig!
