…BUT WHERE DO I PUT MY SHOES?! —–the question I asked myself as soon as I finished filling up my closet with all of my clothes and bags. GREAT! Shoes take up TONS of space, and if you don’t have a built in shoe closet, it can be tricky to find ways to keep them visible and organized (not stacking them on the floor of the closet). Given I had no space for my shoes, I had to get creative. I wanted something that I could display my heels on. Something with doors so that they wouldn’t accumulate dust, and something that adds to the decor of my space. I went on IKEA’s website and found this one, which I thought was really pretty! I want my office to be only white and tan colors (think Tulum), so this would be a great fit. I went to the store the next day to see it in person, and decided to get it. In a perfect world, I would’ve gotten the double cabinets (they have an option for 2 of these side by side) but I didn’t have enough space on that wall. Grrrr.
In my closet I put two small wooden racks (each with 3 levels) that I use for all of my flats, sneakers, and slippers. I still have a large moving box full of shoes that didn’t fit in my closet + shoe cabinet (mostly boots) so I think I might have to have them on one of the garage racks we will be getting. Or do you guys have any other ideas? I feel like it’s so weird to put your boots in the garage but I feel like that’s my only option?
I also got a cute wooden ladder from IKEA that I put next to the cabinet. Cute, huh? Only $45. Compared to all of the other ”trendy” ladders I’ve seen online, this is a STEAL!
ALSO, I had to show you guys what’s on the other side of the camera…. a big hot mess! Only one side of the room has been making progress hehe. I have a bunch of random things that don’t have a place to go yet, so I need to get on that. 4 yoga mats…. unnecessary. Hats that need to be hung.. decorations and paintings that need to go up on the wall…. pictures/documents that need to be filed… the list goes on.
What do you guys think about the shoe cabinet? Let me know your thoughts in a comment below 🙂
