Then, I measured the cavity and cut 2 pieces of plywood as doors and painted the doors. I added a smaller square on the front as a decorative element. Next was to add the two doors to the front, attaching them on both sides with hinges. Then, I added knobs. And my narrow hallway bench is about done.
The last thing to do was to make a seat. I used foam covered with fabric and placed it on the bench as seating. You can secure the cushion to the LACK top using Velcro if you want to.
It’s compact, slim and perfect for my narrow hallway.
