Not too long ago, we were on a green search for the best shoe organizer.
We opted for a few baskets from IKEA ... but, if we had more room, it sure would be nice to have something like this.
This reclaimed bench from Collective Four works as a shoe organizer, hat/umbrella/glove rack, and nice place to sit down and relax. We think it would look appropriate in a more rustic mudroom or a modern foyer.
The wood used to be a beam in a factory.
You can see the whole process -- from concept to construction -- on the Collective Four blog.
