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 hide all the flaws, and paint the material with a color that will suit the theme of the space where you intend to place it.

Leave it to dry completely and then place it where you want. However, if you live in an earthquake-prone area, I suggest you bolt the closet-turned-into-boots-storage in your wall. You can easily do this using some L brackets.

Perform some finishing touches on your DIY project. Arrange your boots, and voila. You now have the perfect storage for crease-free boots. Try this DIY for your spring cleaning and organizing and thank me later.
