That's where this easy boot tray DIY comes in. It uses river rocks for a pretty farmhouse look. The rocks also do a great job of stopping your boots from sitting in a pile of melted snow. It's a fantastic DIY solution!

Editor's Project Tips

Don't Be Afraid of Color

We love the neutral color scheme in this project. But it's easy to add some bright color if that's what you're looking for! Puchase your boot tray in a fun color like pink or green, and fill it with rocks of any hue you choose. Some other color schemes that would look great? Black and white, turquoise and brown, or black and purple.

Have Fun Sourcing Your Rocks

Consider incorporating rocks from fun places you've been or places that your family likes to hang out. Does your family go camping every summer? Consider picking up a few rocks and adding them to the collection in this DIY boot tray. Your kids might also enjoy bringing home a rock from school or from a friend's house to add to the collection. Just remember to be respectful and ask permission if needed before bringing home your souvenirs!

Are you looking for a way to keep the mud from getting on the floor where you put your boots in winter or want a better way to organizer them than why not check out this idea. So very simple but does the job. If you have a hall entry closet or a mud room this would be perfect. The pebbles keep the floor dry and mud from dripping. I love the pebbles to help absorb the water and mud and I like the idea of storing the other shoes on the shelf. Do you need one of these?
