I found these ideas for shoe storage and thought I'd share them with you. Not sure if they'll work.
The first one is a rack from Walmart. I thought it could sit up against the back of that kitchen cabinet wall right in front of the doorway, if there's room.

There are a lot of different ones along the lines of that one. This is just an example of one.
I thought this next one may work better. It could be painted or stained to match the woodwork and hung with command strips so we wouldn't have to drill into anything.

Anyway, just some ideas. Also, I wanted to ask, whenever you have time, would you mind taking a measurement for me? I was wondering how deep the cabinets are on either side of the microwave? I wanted to try and find some dishes, but needed to know how big the plates could be. If you don't have time, I understand.
