New Storage Bench

I had an old desk in my sunroom that was just the right size for my laptop. But lately it seems to have found a new home on the coffee table in another room, so I decided to free up some space for a new storage bench. I had quite the time finding what I wanted. I visited furniture stores around town, but they didn't have anything. I finally found what I was looking for at Home Depot. It's very sturdy and the cushion came with it.

I guess I only got one picture of "before." It took a bit longer to put together than I had hoped. The back piece had tracks that it needed to slide into and it wasn't fitting so I had to go back a couple of steps and do some adjusting. 
I found a couple of pretty boxes for one side and two cloth bins for the other. I moved the desk to the basement with the rest of my office stuff. Right now I only have one of the storage boxes filled, but I'm working on organizing and moving things around in the house so I'm sure it won't take long to fill them. The extra seating is nice too since it's right inside the back door.
