Want to see what he was assembling? A new shoe cabinet for the breakfast nook!
The previous home owners built awesome coat hooks that we love and provide great storage for jackets and backpacks. But, while the backpacks and jackets may have a home, the shoes have overtaken the room. Our coat closet is down the hall and is the size of a bread box, so trying to store the shoes in there just hasn't worked. We do not wear shoes in the house, so the second we walk through the door, the shoes end up getting kicked off behind the door. Like so...
And this is a good day. Add a couple more pairs of shoes, a sprinkling of socks, and a bunch of tracked in leaves and dirt and you have it on a bad day. :/these shoe cabinets at Ikea and knew it was the solution to our shoe problem! They are only about 8 1/2" deep, so they don't take up much room. But, they pack a ton of storage! Bonus points--they're cute!
