I spotted these stair drawers on page 127 of the January issue of Good Housekeeping--what an inventive idea! If you're looking for a tidy solution for corralling shoes (or gloves, or sunglasses, or dog leashes) near the front door, this may just be it. A few caveats: first, this is not a DIY project; plan to consult a carpenter for help with this one. Also, it seems to me that you'd want to find a way to spring load the drawers to close automatically so that you don't find yourself stepping into an open drawer one night and cartwheeling, cartoon-style, down the stairs!
