January: Standing Boot Rack

This winter, give muddy, salt-stained floors the boot with this clever stand, a perfect resting place for wet Wellies and snowy footwear. Ours gets a stylish upgrade from a mix of turned-wood stair balusters. Hit up your local salvage yard or pick up new ones at the home center, starting at $5 each. Paint the piece an eye-catching color, and now you've got smart storage that's a real kick.
