The classic raised panels on this tall-back bench help it fit into many decorating schemes. If you don’t like the look of new construction—we bought our 32” oak door at a home center—you could build a pine bench with a recycled door from an architectural salvage dealer. Distressed and painted, it would fit styles from country to urban loft. Omit the drawer to create an open storage cubby, or forget the back/door completely and build just the bench.
