This is a perfect combo of my two favorite ideas for that space under the stairs leading to the basement. A reading nook AND book storage and shelves . assuming that there is enough space for this there.
This is a fabulous storage solution for your shoes. Instead of letting your shoes clutter up your entrance way or take up valuable closet space try this out. Transform some stair steps into a shoe drawer.
