While walking through our fair city, we're often impressed by the beauty... and with a wafting aroma or passing glance, we're just as often reminded of the funk. When we come home, we'd rather not track the remains from our walk in the Tenderloin through our apartment, but we'd also not like a giant pile of shoes at our front door greeting guests.
We'd like a good looking option for a place to leave a few pairs of shoes by the front door. This tip for a pebble tray would be great, perhaps if it was a bit longer (like this option from Smith & Hawken) to accomodate a few more pairs.
Any other options for organizing shoes at the front door? We usually keep them lined up, but it always seems to end up getting pretty cluttered. Suggestions?
