I don’t know about you but shoes and Martinis have definitely caused me slight pain and suffering over the years, but that hasn't stopped me yet and I'll keep strut-tining on (hold on while I coin that term).
Technically this post was supposed to happen when we get to the finishing stage on each room (after the remodel), but I couldn’t resist sharing this easy transformation.
My sweet boyfriend knew there was a shoe problem when the temporary box they were hiding in couldn’t fit them all anymore:Noteworthy things:
- Please forgive the crappy phone shot.
- Yes, that is our microwave in the laundry room, that’s totally normal during remodeling, right?!
- I do own some comfy shoes as in those mega-comfortable Etnies skater shoes.
We still had left over doors from installing the closet shelves, the beau has the tools to cut just about any kind of lumber, and he always has tons of extra screws lying around so this project the big fat $0.
We pretty much did the same thing as the Patches and Shelves post when installing the shelves minus the use of brackets. Instead of brackets, he used the Kreg Jig to make them ‘float’ by putting a few pocket holes in each shelf. If attempting at home, ensure the holes line up with studs. You wouldn’t want scuff marks all over your precious shoes now would you?
All that was left to do was fill the shelves.
Take an ordinary corner and turn it into something fabulous:
And to finish the day off right:
Of course I can only drool over designer shoes because let’s face it $1,195 is just a little over my monthly allowance for shoes.
Are you making any budget updates to your dwelling? Are you drooling all over those Louboutins? Do you think Martinis and Shoes are worth suffering for? Any Martini AND Shoe lovers in the house?

P.S. I was not paid or perked from Etnies or any other vendor mentioned in this post; I just happily provided a source to their amazingly comfortable shoes.
