Even though I didn't build my own house, I do try to reuse and repurpose as many things as I can in my life because I don't like waste. Those old lockers that are now planters around my house had lots of little hooks in them. After pulling those, I used some of them to get the shoes off the floor right inside my door. I do still have a pan there for setting really muddy pairs or big boots, but all the smaller shoes hang pretty nicely and are out of the way. I think I'll like this setup!
