Cheap and Easy Shoe Storage with Ikea Bygel Rail

I have this little, bitty corner in my bedroom.  Behind my bedroom door.  I wish I had a "before" picture to show you.

My shoes were stored all on the floor.  Usually in a big jumble. Where it took 3 hours to find the matching pair.  If I was lucky.

Enter the Ikea Bygel Rail.  $2.99.  Two dollars and ninety-nine cents!  My girls have had this rod for a while in their bedroom. It had little buckets hanging on it filled with crayons, markers, etc.

The other day I was in their bedroom and thought Hmmmmmmmmmm...  Then I ran to my bedroom and grabbed a couple pair of shoes to see if they fit.

They did.  Perfectly.

So one trip to Ikea.  And 5 Bygel Rails later (did I mention they are only $2.99 each?)

I now have shoe storage!

I love that I am using up empty space in a corner

on a wall

behind a door

that I thought was unusable!

I do believe even my shoes are smiling :)

Hello Fall!

Hello pumpkin!
And pumpkins!
And multi-colored squash thingies!
Hello little toes!
Hello millions of corn kernels!
Hello hands and feet!
Hello sibling love!
Hello 3 acre sunflower field!
Hello hunters!
Yes, Fall is definitely here!  I love it!
