Psst! This plush, microsuede ottoman is secretly storing 10 pairs of shoes within its 20 shoe pockets. Your spouse does not need to know about this. The lid has an anti-slam feature, so you can access your covert shoe stash safely.
Make It: Turn outgrown baby shoes into holiday ornaments by adding a four-inch section of rope or twine to the shoes' straps, and then tying two small knots to connect the pair. To hang securely, place one shoe on each side of a branch until they hang evenly.
Using a mixture of glitter and Mod Podge, you can embellish old shoes to create festive holiday attire. Add ribbon laces for a vintage flair, and use painter's tape to protect the soles of the shoes when applying the glitter mixture.
Give those extra wire hangers you have lying around a purpose by transforming them into a shoe storage apparatus. Savannah of Oh So Pretty the Diaries used pliers and yarn to turn wire hangers into a convenient way to hang her shoes.
Bring new life to your old household items. Amanda of A Lovely Place to Land transformed an old wooden thread rack into a clever storage solution for kids' shoes. Display the rack on a dresser or mount it on a wall to save space. Arrange shoes by type and color to make it easy to find what you need.
Look for benches with open shelves when designing your makeshift mudroom – the extra space is ideal for storing grimy shoes and boots that shouldn’t come inside the house. If you have kids, you can also add a labeled bin for each of them to toss sports gear, toys and other belongings.
A hanging shoe system on the back of a closet door is the perfect storage solution for saving space and staying organized. In this space, the bright pink color even coordinates with bedroom accessories.
