I'm going to show you guys how to make a shoe storage out of milk crates and zip ties. It's a cost effective, practical solution for storage shoes (or whatever else you can need)
You will need zip ties, a drill, drill bit, milk crates, and a piece of wood for the top
Using a drill bit-drill a hole in the crates
Zip tie the crates together
Stack your crates and drill a hole to connect them together. You can go however many wide and tall you need. I just used 4 milk crates because my foyer is very small.
Continue this process until it's secure
I placed a piece of scrap wood I had in my garage on the top so it doubles as a small entry table. I used these bins from Amazon and they fit perfectly! It helps to hide the clutter!
