We’d been keeping all our our shoes in separate hanging shoe racks, not quite working in this closet because it didn’t leave much space for hanging our jackets. So I wanted to take advantage of all of the space on the bottom of the closet that was underutilized.
Baskets and old wooden wine crates help keep the smaller things organized.
We gave the inside of the closet a fresh coat of paint and added some shelves to the bottom half for all of our shoes. We each get a shelf and the top one houses all our taller shoes.
It’s a lot nicer to open this door in the morning and see everything nicely organized. And Arden can open it herself and pick out her shoes in the morning. She loves it – and more often than not picks her pink rainboots to wear…rain or shine 😉
We primed and painted wood strips and attached them on all three sides of the closet. Then bought solid wood panels for the shelves. The priming and painting took the longest, so I’d recommend buying pre-primed wood if you can swing it! In our case, our closet size wasn’t standard enough :
