The last thing you want to see when you home are piles of shoes in your entryway. We have easy ways to clean up the clutter.

How do you keep your entry way clean and clutter free?  Do you have a specific way of organizing shoes by the front door?

We have shoe boxes/bins by the front door that corral all of our shoes. It isn't the prettiest option, but it seems to work.

When you have extra woods in your garage, you can start making your DIY back door shoe rack or stand-alone shoe cabinet. Start from the right size you want, it can be as tall as your regular door.

Here are basic materials you need:
-used woods including plywood
-sanding paper
-wood working measurement

You can install the cabinet or shoe rack at the back of your door, as attached on the walls, or if you have light type of woods you can install it at the back of the door itself.

But for sure you needs some additional door to have that shoe or cabinet rack covers itself. Bi-fold or or fiberglass door is what you need, if you are near Bay Area, San Francisco, check this for perfect type of doors that you can use.
