Easy Fix

Winter is upon us and it's pretty easy for our front halls to start looking like an unorganized mess!
One of my biggest pet peeves is when a boot falls over creating a domino effect.  Soon enough not one boot is left standing and my foyer looks like a disaster.

Here's a cheap fix I came up with last year to keep my boots looking more orderly and neat.

You will need:

-unbroken (still intact) chopsticks 
-some paint (I use acrylic)

You can choose to keep your chopsticks natural or paint them for a fun look.
If painting them, hang on some dental floss to dry- this is a good way to make sure no paint is stuck between them while drying.

Allow 24 hrs to dry and then use them on your thin floppy boots.

After some wear and tear your chopsticks may break apart.  If this happens try them out on one of your plants!  Nothing hold up a leaning cactus better than a chopstick :)
