Boots organizing

First i would like to thank all of my new followers who joined the last two weeks.  15 new followers in two weeks might not seem like much for you who live in the US. But I’m from Norway, a county with fewer inhabitants than a medium city in the US. So thanks again for following and I hope you’ll find something of interest in the future as well.

It’s autumn (surprise, surprise…:) and although it’s been a very mild and dry one so far I know it will get wet… very wet… which in turn triggers one of my biggest annoyances . Shoes and boots, sand and slush in perfect harmony all over the floor. Impossible to keep clean since the boots are constantly in the way. And even when I try to line them up nice it looks messy.

But then I got an idea… a curtain rod... Should be able to make that into something useful… I put thought into action and suddenly my hallway look a lot more organized and it’s possible for both the vacuum and mop to get around.
Only negative I have encountered so far is that the hooks I used has little teeth to provide a good grip. These teeth might leave a mark on the boot shaft so if you appreciate your things a little more than I do I would put something in between the shaft and teeth.

That is awesome. I am gonna try. To make a suggestion, try covering the clip teeth with fabric tape. That might prevent them from digging into your booths!

Oh goodness! That's genius! My boots are always floppy over too. What a fantastic idea!

Great idea! Have you thought about using skirt hangers and pushing the clips close together. It shouldn't leave marks and might hold them.
