1927 house…these were in the bottoms of closets in all 3 bedrooms. Is this a built in shoe rack?
Could be. The only time I’ve seen this in closets, there were stairs on the other side.
Typically/usually/normally, old homes did not have clothes closets. Cedar chests and Highboys retaining clothing.
Lift the top to see what’s underneath.
That would be my 1st choice
Yes, I have used them before…heck, I’ve built them.
They were in all three bedrooms. It wasn’t the other side of stairs. They didn’t lift up. I think they were shoe racks…I just never saw it before.
Only if you put shoes on it.
Often see them when they run something inside the chase.
Scott nailed it.
Many. many skeletons!
C’mon guy’s that where the LGBT community stayed before coming out of the closet
