So Smart = Crown Molding Shoe Shelves - perfect space saver storage. base pine base molding and crown molding + white spray paint. Wood glue crown on to base molding, nail to hold in place while drying, spray paint, install w/ 2 screws onto wall studs.
Re-use plastic bottle tops to tightly seal food bags. Cut off wide-mouth plastic bottle top just at crest. save the cap. slip over bag opening. top toward the open end. Fold bag over bottle mouth. cap with re-used bottle top. easy to seal and pour!
DIY: PVC Pipe Shoe Storage - so fun and so simple, could easily spray paint or cover in fabric or paper too. maybe a horizontal layout of two rows or something. I think this would be good for garage "yard shoes" storage
