Two things I really want to build for Casa Crustante (and I'm pretty sure they'll only take a weekend- not including paint)
1. A storage bench w/ coat rack:
here (photo and design by Blue Roof Cabin). I'd modify this a bit by widening the seat to allow for a super secret cat litter box.
2. A bench (again, with storage) to replace the settee in our dining area. I found this inspiration shot also from Blue Roof Cabin.
Right now our emergency kit and earthquake supplies are stuffed under the settee. It looks cluttered, so having a clean space to stash it would be amazing.
