Kid’s Shoe Organizer


A good friend of mine gave me this shadowbox shelf  a while back. It is supposed to be used to display little knick-knacks.  I told her I thought I could find a use for it.  I thought it would make great little cubbyholes for my little one’s shoes.


I hit it up with a little white spray paint  and modpodged the word shoes on top. 



(The glue still wasn’t dry when I took these photos.)

  I hope this will help keep all of her shoes together and off of the floor.  I don’t know if you ever have this problem at your house but the kids tend to just kick off their shoes wherever, then they can’t find them!  A scavenger hunt always follows and it is usually when we have to get someplace right. now.    Not much fun!

I’ll definitely be keeping my eyes peeled for more of these for my other kids.  You can find little shelves like these a lot at garage sales and thrift stores, and they are really so useful, not just for shoes!  You could use one in the bathroom for hand towels- wouldn’t that be pretty, all rolled up and tucked in the little cubbies?  Or maybe for craft supplies?  I love anything that will keep me organized and make life a little easier!
