This solid pine shoe rack is a great piece for the closet, front hall, or even bedroom. It holds eight pairs of shoes in the base and also has a great top surface area for holding or displaying other items depending where you put it. Books and blankets for the bedroom, purses, hats and more shoes for the closet and a place to put your keys and bags in the entry hall. It is amazingly multi-purpose and the best part is that it is good for the environment. It is made of renewable solid wood (not from intact natural forests).
