Repurposing My Shoe Organizers in the Pantry

Recently I purchased some horizontal shoe organizing shelves for our mud room/laundry room entry from the garage. We always have a bunch of shoes (mostly mine) there in that small space. So I was looking to tidy up the space.

After bringing the shelves home, I decided I'd prefer vertical cubbies to save floor space. I was intending to take the horizontal shelves back, but came up with a problem-solving use for them.

Some of the shelves in my pantry are very far apart. One especially is very inefficient, having a vertical space of 2-3 feet. Voila! Instant usable space! Why didn't I think of this before?

Here's an after picture. I always get so involved in my projects that I forget to take before pictures!

I'm so pleased that the items in my stacks now have their own space!
