The Big Reveal: Our AMAZING $500 Custom Shelving Unit

I'm almost embarrassed to post these pictures.

But I like to keep it real around here. And let's face it, no amount of Instagram filters would make this mess of an entryway look good.

Since moving into our fixer-upper last fall, our shoe situation has been out of control.

It felt like I walked into the path of a tornado anytime I came or went through our main entryway between the garage and kitchen.

When I reached out to a few local carpenters and asked how much it'd be for a custom shelving unit (similar to these units I'd seen on Pinterest), all three of them said it was "too big of a project."

Of course my hubby saw that as a challenge and decided to tackle it himself.

He's a social worker by trade, but he happens to be smart and handy so I pretty much hit the jackpot there.

After countless trips to the home improvement store, this new circular saw and a few late nights of sanding and painting and staining...
It's DONE!

Seriously. How AMAZING is this custom shelving unit?!

I still need to pick up some baskets for the shoes, but at least each kiddo will have their own space and we're not tripping over them anymore!

And best of all, this custom unit was built with love and less than $500 -- a win-win in my book!
