Thrifty Cowboy Boot Storage

No matter how expensive or high-class your cowboy boots are, they won’t last if you won’t keep them properly. One of the most common problems with leather boots is crease, especially if you have styles with shafts covering your calves.
The good news is that you don’t have to spend a fortune to keep them in order. A thrifted bookcase provides an inexpensive and easy solution to organizing your favorite footwear.
So how do you do it? First off, head to your trusted thrift store, and get something like a faux-wood bookcase. Get rid of the back panel. You won’t need it for this project. Use a primer to …
