shoe happy

The kiddies share a room and so I am always after clever ways to store their stuff. About 18months ago I found this super ugly shoe hanger system. It came in black or grey so really no choice. It has sat like a big black blob on their cupboard door since. But when it started falling apart, I saw my chance!

I made a new lovely, neutral, light one. No pattern, I used the old one and increased it by one shoe slot down the side. I used two types of canvas to try and give it a bit more strength but in retrospect I could have used a thicker canvas for the shoe slots. My little plastic sewing machine may have died though!

I lowered the whole holder so Grace can reach her shoes at the bottom and Luka has the rows that are higher...

I love how this turned out but would not be keen to do it again, ha! I need to tone down the perfectionist gene as this took far too long. Still, it makes me happy every time I walk in the room!
