Would be great for shoe storage. This laundry pedestal is one of my favorite builds so far It not only saves me from having to bend over searching for lost socks in the dryer but my kids can now sort their own laundry in the labeled baskets
I made something like this when the kids were little - whites, lights, darks - kids sort their own laundry.
Mixing textures adds a level of interest and elegance to any space especially during the holidays. Wood trays, galvanized metal storage bins and faux greenery will make your foyer festive and functional at a friendly price.
