I can definitely appreciate this idea. I have a big bookcase in my bedroom without a single book on it. (Don’t worry … I have plenty of books elsewhere in the house). Instead, it serves as my shoe closet, with most of my good shoes sitting on the four shelves with easy access. It keeps me from throwing them in the bottom of the closet or kicking them off all over the house and doesn’t make for a bad display. I use the same idea for my clutches and small bags, housing them on a wall shelf, but I seem to be missing the fabulous black quartz bookends above. I guess I’ll just have to add them to my wishlist or keep my eye out for a more budget friendly pair! How stylish!
