So that is now in our front closet and should help reduce the mound of shoes that normally builds up there. To fit it in the closet and have it remain usable will mean having to pare down a few things from the closet (mostly coats that aren't worn any more), but that's a good thing.
Also installed the shelf I got for Ericka. This one I can link to, it's called KIRP and looks like a big metal check-mark. I attached it to the wall near the head of her bed so that she can keep near her and out of the way, the massive stack of books that she has on hand for reading at any given time. Since she'll often have upward of eight novels plus various books on topics that have grabbed her fancy so that she'll always have something to read, no matter her mood, this should help keep her bed-side table a little less cluttered and able to hold other items of import.
