No Closet? No Problem! Storing Shoes Out In The Open

Yesterday we showed you the living room of Kelly in Kansas City and while you were all busy telling her how to rearrange her furniture I was busy checking our her shoe closet. And by closet, I mean DIY, out in the open, awesome idea for loft and small closet owners everywhere. Kelly was faced with a common problem — a love of shoes and lack of closet space. Many retail options come at a high cost and after ruling them out she decided she could make something that would get the job done.

A piece of MDF, a bit of paint and a few towel bar bathroom fixtures later and she has shoe storage for 100 pairs, easy! Although some of you wouldn't be comfortable with the idea of staring at your shoes 24/7, you'd be surprised what you learn to live with in loft living. I love that she gave it a small paint treatment to treat it as a piece of art — after all if it's going to be in the room, it might as well look great while doing so!

It might be your cup of tea, but it's still a great idea to expand upon if you are someone faced with little to no storage, especially when it comes to your closet!

Thanks Kelly!
