Kid’s Bench

Kid's Bench

Molger Bench

I purchased the Molger Bench thinking it would be perfect for my young boys to use for putting their shoes on, however once I assembled it, I realized that the seat was way too high for them. So instead of returning it, I took the top seat off and attached it to the back. The lower shelf of the bench turned out to be the perfect height for them. The beauty of this is that when they get bigger it can be converted to the original bench!

    Can we get a pic of the back? I’d like to see how you attached the bottom half of the back
