Shoe Rack

Supermodel Melanie with shoe rack - Airplanes and RocketsOur one-car garage does not have a lot of extra space in it, especially considering it also holds a riding lawn mower, a snow blower, a backup power generator, and various and sundry yard and car tools.

After completing building a set of stairs into the basement, there were end pieces of the stair treads left over that were just the right width to fit into the space where the cinder blocks used to be stacked. 2x3 framing lumber served as the vertical corner members. These photos show the relatively simple effort required to put the leftover wood to good use.
