Like the rustic crate idea.Shoe closet, every woman needs ones. This is a great idea for a loft apt or small apt. Use Glitterfarm Crates to add some color and stack the different sizes to fit shoes, boots and purses.
Take a table with a cruddy top and just put stained boards over top. >>> Would be great for a cheap table set at a yard sale or Goodwill type place. scratches etc, cheap. good for first apartment to the youngin's
