Decorating Ideas to Store Shoes in Your Entry

Guest Author - Donna Coogan

Is your entry overflowing with shoes? Itís quite natural to come home and kick off your shoes, however, this can lead to overflow by the front (or back) door. Especially if the weather is nasty requiring shoes to be removed immediately upon entry. Having a pile up by the door is not only a traffic hazard, but also hinders this space from making a good first impression. To solve the shoe problem, you need a pretty container that will keep them organized. Consider the following cheap decorating ideas.

Narrow Pan
A fairly large narrow pan, like a kitty litter box or a baking pan can hold several pairs of shoes while also providing a waterproof area for them to drip-dry when necessary. To disguise their original purpose, apply spray paint to these containers in the color of your choice. First prime them with a universal primer and then use plastic spray paint for the kitty litter box or metal spray paint for the baking pan. Using acrylic paint, add stripes, checks, swirls, polka dots or any other designs that inspire you. Embellished in such an artistic way, these containers can easily be left in your entry or outside on a front porch or stoop.

Old Drawers
If you are into vintage or flea market style decor, use something like a lone dresser drawer to hold your shoes. These are usually wide and deep enough to hold many pairs of shoes. Just screw some large pretty knobs on the bottom for feet so that the drawer can stand in your foyer. Then line it with a waterproof container to protect from moisture.

Baskets
Baskets are a long time favorite for storing things and fortunately they come in every size, shape and color imaginable. They are cheap and easy to find in arts & craft shops, dollar stores or home and garden centers. Find one large enough to store multiple pairs of shoes.

There you have it: three cheap decorating ideas to store shoes in your foyer. Thereís no more reason to have them lying around to trip you up or to create an eyesore. Using a decorative container can easily organize them. And containers like those described above can also be quickly removed and kept in a closet or under a bed until needed again.
