Shoe Wall Art!

How cool is this? Couldnt go past it in the latest "The English Home" I bought last week. Such a clever idea. The article said that she liked to use ladders as works of art (and storage) and I love the idea
Then I found these metal shoes as wall art in a display home

And I thought "What about using really pretty shoes instead?"

What do you think?


  1. i think it's a genius idea, very boudoir

  2. I love the idea and it is funny to!

  3. I LIKE! I think that is what I WILL DO with a pair of vintage shoes that I painted GOLD and embellished! I am running upstairs right now to see where I can put them!!!! HAVE A GRAND DAY! Anita

  4. What a fab idea. I'm not sure my shoes are pretty enough! x Sharon

  5. Oh dearest, more often than not, those uncharted waters are DEEP and DARK....I wish you safety and peace and success as you are called to do what you must...thank you so much for coming by....peace to you dearest Anita

  6. This shoe idea is the best! I'm on the way out to buy myself a ladder! LOL (no really, I am).
    Thanks for the inspiration!

  7. Hi Fiona! love the shoes on the ladder idea!! and it looks so cute on the wall!!!
    i hope you had a lovely holiday, can you believe how fast it went? on the countdown till xmas now though!!!
    Hugs to you, Laura xx

  8. I agree, a great use for a looks good and is serving a function too! We have a store filled with ladders at the moment (or so it seems) so I love seeing other uses for these. With regards to the metal shoes, I think they are pretty but so are a lot of shoes we wear? I would probably go for the real deal myself! Tammy

  9. Pottery Barn has a "shoe ladder" they are about $129+ shipping. I bought one 2 months ago love it, it's in shabby sheik white, kind of narrow but you could buy 2, I hang boas, old purses, yes shoes, my old toe shoes, jewelry-it's so much fun and it fits into the corner of the room, you know how hard corners are to decorate.

  10. Dearest Fiona (?),

    Lovely blog and I am following you here and on FB... Coming from Sarah Klassen/Haute Design. The shoe idea is great!

    Lots of love,


  11. Sorry for the delay in response. I was wrapping up finals this week.
    In resonse to your questions ~ Yes.. however, you should be able to find it via continuing education if you prefer. I feel there are bonuses to taking the college course.

    I have a couple of The Web Collection Revealed books and like them. There are various books for each program. I have the InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator version and Dreamweaver, Flash and Photoshop.

    Wishing you a lovely weekend! xoxo, B

  12. Very pretty. Love the shoeladder.
