Materials: IKEA KLISTRIG place mat

Description: My boots needed a savior as they were all standing knocked over in the closet. The solution was IKEA’s KLISTRIG place mat.

I cut the place mats into large triangles, rolled them up and placed them in the boots.

    Brilliant! I use these mats on the shelves of our fridge to help keep it clean, but I really love this idea much more!

    Adding placemats to my shopping list….

    Have some riding boots that really need a tree, but I’m just too cheap to buy one. Thanks!
