The space under the stairs wasn’t really “wasted” but we reorganized it and added this shoe storage.

That looks GREAT! Fantastic use of wasted space, and really nicely constructed.

Very nice…...helps get the clutter off the floor and I have to imagine that it makes it easier to walk in and out of the door that I see in picture #3
Well done.

Great idea! I like the idea of using the space. I’d like to do almost the same but add a door or mirror to the outside to finish it off.

Well done!

I like it as well. Turn it into a door shoe cubby and you could have a cupboard under the stairs, also. Good call on this project.

Or a secret room (whispering).

Very cool. I wish I had some dead space like that to take advantage of.

What are the dimensions of the cubbys? I need to get the same kind of project done for my wife as well.
