Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I think this is a wonderfully creative idea. It could also be considered for other uses such as bookends (or some other decoration). Think of using an old pair of shoes and decorate them victorian style and maybe using them for holders for remote controls, etc. The possibilities are endless.

I think this shoe looks like a size 15!!! Wow. And way too fussy..for a "door stop". I can see using this idea but using more plain items for decorating.
