    Very nice! Tell me about the metal pieces on the outside corners - did you buy those or make them?

    I think I'm gonna just get the bars and install them across the bottom of my closet. This way I won't have to deal with mentally remembering what pair is in what box or reading the handwritten names. But what will I do with all of the boxes?????

    Thanks, but you are right that was the plan but I think I became lazy.

    This was really fun to see. :fistbump: I have fantasized about the Ephtée designed room for my seemingly endless collection, but this has set the wheels spinning on the temperature controlled buildout of the garage :rotflmao:

    Just do it, you need a bit of time and lots of will and thats it.


    It is an idea but tough to set-up


    I bought it but it is not exactly what I wanted. Actually it was impossible to find the same kind in solid brass.


    I think it is a good idea and keep the box to keep extra shoes (As I do for the rest of the collection)

    Looks neat. What are those very light colored wingtips on the second row?

    PS. I would actually put a cover that says Marshall on it on that thing. \m/.§ d_d §.\m/

    Nice! I would even go for a simple one made out of wood and stained.

    Where did you get the metal bars?

    Have you done other projects like this, and if so, what were they? Thank you.
