A toy box bench adds an additional function to a piece of furniture essential to any child's room. Bench styles range from elaborate to simple and usually have a low backrest and arms since they will be mostly used by children. Many standard toy box plans can be modified to include a bench by making the back and side panels taller to create a simple backrest and arms.
As a mom and a self-confessed sentimentalist, I love pieces of furniture that grow and change with your needs. This space would look beautiful in a nursery or toddler’s room, sit happily in a tween or teen’s den, and when they’ve all left home, fit perfectly in your sunroom or foyer. Okay, I’m getting a little bit ahead of myself here, but you know what I mean. The toy box bench combo is an investment and future family heirloom.
