If you have small children, you will know how difficult it is to keep all their toys off the floor. By providing a storage bench in their bedroom, you can use the storage compartment to store their toys, or any others items of your choice. The bench also provides a place for them to sit when getting dressed and changing shoes. In order to make the bench more fun, you could buy a plain wooden storage bench and you could paint it to a color that suites the current bedroom color scheme. It is also a great way to spend some time with your child. By buying hand paint you could even decorate the bench with their hand and foot prints.
The third thing to think about is what do you want the storage function to be. Do you just need a spot to store bed linens, or are you looking for more? Benches with storage take on many shapes, one bench that may house your linens, would not be what you want if you want to store shoes or boxes with old memories inside. Another function you may want is that this piece of furniture not only has enclosed storage, but may have display areas underneath the bench as well. The final area of consideration for function to think about is what kind of top do you need. Are you going to be sitting on it often, or do you want the beauty of solid wood or other material. If it is in front of a window consider a sitting style bench and if you will sit on it infrequently like for changing clothes a hard top will do just fine.
If your child really wants a particular character that you can't find in a stencil, you can still make it happen. Find a coloring book picture of that character and rip it out of the coloring book. You also need a piece of carbon transfer paper. Put the carbon paper face down where you want the character to be on the storage bench. Now put the coloring book image on top of it. Using a pencil trace over all the lines of the character. Take your time on this part. You want to make sure you do this well as the better the job you do, the more the character will look like it is supposed to. When you remove the paper you should be able to see an outline of the character you wanted.
