I plan to make a less rustic one from dowels in the future. I have been planning to make one for 4 or 5 years now.
I like it. It helps clean up the space.
I left enough space under it for the boys' shoes or my flats.
As you can see we had a lot of sticks in the backyard. They are all from one tree. All those games of playing "Indians" in the backyard as a child came in handy. It was a beautiful day to be outside this afternoon.
