How I Fixed Our Entryway Storage Problem


Entryway storage.. that was a problem! See how I fixed it by changing up some inexpensive shelves.
Entryway storage.. that was a problem. Just not enough spots for shoes/boots and since we have limited space for such items a shelf has been the best option I have found thus far. But it was just not right.
Here is the before.. which was 2 inexpensive shelves that I painted and had previously added a top to. However we needed a spot for taller boots.
So I took it apart, spaced the shelves even further apart and made a new top
and bottom for my new shelving unit.
Then I attached brackets to the center section so I could add a shelf.
This is where the taller boots will be having a home.
After this, I gave it a fresh coat of paint and found some galvanized bins that I knew would fit perfectly to give it a more finished look. (and hold a lot more shoes without looking so cluttered!)
It works so much better.. and looks better too! :0)

Suggested materials:

  • Inexpensive shelves  (Mart store, Home Depot also has them)
  • Pallet  (free)
  • Brackets  (Mart store, Home depot would also have them)
