There are woman gasping everywhere after reading the title to this post. The problem is not my shoes, but my families shoes. They are everywhere. There are some by the front door, the back door, and by the couch between the living room and the kitchen.
There is not an entryway closet in this house, so besides our bedroom closets, there is no where to put our everyday shoes. For us that means flip flops, running shoes, or cowboy boots.
At our old house, I would just use a large crate and place in on the floor in the closet and call it the shoe box. Now, I would really like a shoe storage solution that is closed, so you cannot see the shoes.
I found some great storage ideas on Pinterest.
I love this idea, but there are no stairs in my house.
I have a hall tree, but am keeping it in the garage to house seasonal things. I love how this is incorporated into the stairwell.
I am leaning towards a piece of furniture like this. This one screws to the wall, which is not an option for us since we are renting. I wonder if there is a 3M product that would work?
There is also the idea of a trunk or chest. Here are a few options from Target.
I really like the woven look of these trunks. My walls are builder cream and it would bring some warmth into the entryway.
I found this really cool storage bench from Ikea that just may be what I was looking for.
It is the APPLARO storage bench, and is only $70. It will serve two purposes. It is sturdy so you can sit on it, and it will house all our shoes.
Darn, I guess this means I will have to make a trip to Ikea.
Guess I better make a list.
Do you have any shoe storage ideas?
