PVC pipe shoe storage Since I wrote the column, which talks about making shoe storage from PVC pipes, and fixing them to a wall, I've found an even easier way to do this – using cardboard tubing and a roof-rack strap.

Cheap and easy canopy: I made this one out of 1 inch PVC pipes (7) and used corner PVC pipes (4) to connect at corners. Spray painted the pipes pink before I cut them, then assembled in room (attach curtains prior attaching to corner pieces). Hung curtains from Big lots at 5$ a pair and VOILA, canopy for a princess for 40$
