Shoe Storage in the Foyer

I have twin boys that are 9 years old. They are in and out of the house all day long.
Easy, convenient shoe storage is a must.

I keep an old wooden box in this corner of the foyer for shoes. I added wheels to it so it is off the floor and can be moved around easily.
But this corner looks very BLAH!
So today I took down my Target art from about 13 years ago (it was doing nothing for this wall space). I purchased this table runner made from natural twigs at Target yesterday for $14.99. So I hung it up on the wall above the shoe box.
I then added a mirror trio on top of it.
This little black box opposite the shoes is an old potato bin that I found at an Antique Shop near my home. Any kind of storage is great in this area. Soon I will be looking for places to hold hats and gloves.
Our home has a “lived in” look and feel to it – so I don’t mind seeing our worn shoes.
Recycled storage and natural elements in the home….my kind of style.

  1. I think that's a good idea. We keep all of our shoes on the landing of the steps leading to our garage. It's not very pretty to look at, but it serves a purpose I guess. I like how you have yours corralled all together to keep them out of the way. It seems I'm always having to clear shoes off my floor!

  2. I love this, Holly! I saw your post title on another blog and had to pop over. I always wonder what others do to corral the shoes piled up at the door! This is perfect and the runner hung on the wall with mirrors becomes a focal point rather than to crate of shoes. I use large baskets and I'm trying to get my girls to weed out their flip flops and summer shoes to make room for the boots. I may need a really BIG basket for those! ;-DYou have a wonderful blog…I'm a follower now!XO,Jane

  3. Perfect execution, as usual! I love the idea of taking our shoes off while in the house. Growing up we ALWAYS did that; and I hear it keeps your house a lot cleaner! I need to start training my kids this winter to take off their shoes!!! If I had a gorgeous space like yours maybe they would be more likely to follow directions. That's a BIG maybe…. 🙂 Time for me to track down a fabulous shoe bin… and maybe I can get the hubs to put it on wheels, too! Have a great week! Jules

  4. I like your shoe storage. We don't wear shoes in the house so storage is an issue. My daughter always complains she has no shoes but then within a couple days just she has left 4 or 5 pairs by the door! Your box is a great idea.

  5. I have the SAME exact space by my front door and it's where my shoe bin sits also. I love the look of the runner with mirrors – now you have me looking at my own small wall (that I never thought twice about before!) thinking that I need to dress it up!
