My Shoe Room


So here it is.  My shoe room.  Yes, we call it a room.  Tucked away in the basement storage room (not necessarily glamourous, but super funcational and not in anyone's way ... and might I add keeps my shoes organized and easy to find) is where I keep my shoes.  When we moved into our house (almost four years ago), my birthday was coming up and my parents asked me what I would like for my birthday.  I told them one thing, "Shelves.  For my shoes."  They obliged and bought me four eight-foot long shelves, and hubs installed them for me.  Since then, the shelves have multiplied and wrap around the room.  There have been three installments to get this to room to what it looks like today:  (1) putting up shelves  (2) adding more shelves and  (3) shifting shelves closer together to incorporate a fifth shelf plus another wall of shelves.  It really is a dream and I absolutely love it (and do feel very lucky).  Want a tour?

Wow that's an amazing collection you have. I wish I had a shoe room! I keep all of mine in the boxes b/c I worry about them getting dirty from sitting out. What do you do to keep them in good shape?

Jamie said...

OKAY SHOW OFF!!! You make my closet look like child's play!! hahaha!
(Ok so I am totally jealous!) I wish I had a room to keep my shoes rather than having to box them! I only have room for like 30 pairs at a time, which for most people might be enough....but I'm not most people-and clearly neither are you!!

Wow, I love it! I am glad to see that I am not the only girl to have a huge room dedicated to her shoes. I wish I could leave my shoes out like you do as it would make it easier to find the pairs I want. However for some reason I get lots of dust in my home. If you want to see pics of my shoe room check it out here.

Goodness, you've got quite the collection there!!!!
Super jealous that you've actually got a place to display them all nicely (though from what's currently on the floor, it looks like you'll be needing another shelf!)

Chic on the Cheap
