I still have managed to sneak in a little time (with the kids great help) to create these boot trays to catch all the water and muck that comes in on the shoes this wet time of year.
This project is so easy. Simply purchase an inexpensive boot tray and polished rocks (or collect your own).
I lined the bottom of my tray with silicone so the rocks would be glued in, but if you do not have a 2 yr old to escape with the rocks as I do, this step is not necessary. Spread your rocks over the tray. Done.
Tip: Hate your boots getting trashed from the sides always falling over? Simply roll up a newspaper and stand it inside the boot.
