I've been doing a little autumn cleaning and one area was my closet. My boots were just tossed in a big basket on the top shelf of my closet. I had to bring the big basket down and search for the pair. Well, wanting to reorganize that area and have the boots visible, my "hardware store intuition" kicked in and I searched my husband's workbench.
Perfect boot supports...
This is what I found...one piece of pipe insulation left over from a project for the pipes in our garage.
So I went out and bought some more!! Six feet for only $1.18!!
They come in different sizes, but this is what I purchased.
It's hollow foam tubing that covers pipes to prevent them from freezing.
Has a slit on one side to wrap around the pipe. Click HERE for another project I did years ago with this.
Cuts easily with scissors. I cut it into quarters, but you can adjust for the height of your boots.
Look at that sad boot that can't stand up.
Needs a little foam backbone, don't you think!!
If you have taller or heavier boots, you may need to put 2 tubes in each boot.
Here they are...standing tall!
Much easier to see in my closet too...no more basket.
I highly recommend using these pipe covers. They are cheap, easy to work with and can be used over and over. Just don't take them off your own pipes... LOL or you'll be wearing your boots to wade through the water when your pipes burst!!
Happy Tool Time,
