simple shoe storage

this was a quick weekend project that made our entrance way look a little nicer.  we don't have much of an entrance, so the space is restricted with what type of storage it can hold.  i wanted to create a spot that would be quick & easy to drop off/slip on the shoes that are worn most.  

when i found the wooden create at walmart, i thought it was perfect for that spot.  it's cute, goes with the decor of our home (thrifty & random) & has a functional purpose.

i picked the wooden crate up from walmart & stained it using two coats of varathane wood stain in dark walnut.  the stain was actually purchased for some shelves we have up, so it was the perfect way to test it out & see how the colour turned out (i think it looks great - what do you think of the colour?).

the create is a bit thinner then the counter, leaving enough room for rain boots to be tucked beside it.  

finally, proper spot for shoes that makes the entrance way look nice! how do you guys tackle storage for everyday items like this? i'd love to hear suggestions.
