Is this a shoe rack?

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. :rofl:

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.
