This is the other side of our Family Room. That brown door goes to the garage. This is where we enter our home from, where our keys go, where our shoes and coats drop...some more hap-hazardly than others...
I bought that Pottery Barn knock-off storage bench and shelf from JCP.com last year thinking it would solve all of my problems,,,um no...sigh...it does help and I do like that I can decorate the shelf...
...but the baskets on the bottom are really too small to store alot of shoes in, so other 'crap' seems to accumulate in them instead..or if I do put shoes in them, they are never to be worn again...out of sight, out of mind, I guess. The one idea I do have for it, though, is to spray paint the wicker baskets either a red tone to match the wood, or a green or black to contrast...I think the natural color of them sticks out too much.
The shoe holder thingee we have had for years, it's functional but an eyesore...and I have to put all of the shoes on there, none of my little or big men do this on their own.
The big basket, I just picked up at Big Lots out of desperation, really. I know it doesn't look that hot, but I was tired of looking at all of those shoes all over the floor.
Don't worry about the magazines, I can find a home for them, or recycle/freecycle them :)
So...what do you do with shoes? Do you have any advice for me? I surely do need it!!! Thanks so much, my blogging friends :)
