Keep Your Home Safe from Soggy Shoes (in a Snap!)

Boot season is upon us and in the near future there's sure to be slushy and wet shoes coming into our home. Don't bother with expensive shoe mats or drying racks — all you need is a simple kitchen staple and possibly a little bit of nature.

A simple baking sheet is all you need to keep a handle on the muddy, wet and snow filled shoes that come into your home. The photo above comes from the every stylish home of Ryan and Emerson from Emerson Made. You've probably seen their super amazing pantry floating around, but their entire home is simply splendid.

Their entryway keeps their farm boots and even if you aren't so into feeding chickens and making sure the cows have water in the morning, their simple storage method is an easy one for anyone to replicate at home. A baking sheet of this nature is less than $20 and can easily be washed when it gets dirty.

To take things a step further, you could line the tray with rocks or pebbles to allow the water to drain down, keeping the shoe up out of the run off. It's a great look and an easy solution to an all too common problem going into the Fall and Winter months.

How do you keep your shoes from tracking mud and snow into your space? Let us know in the comments below!
