White elfa Double Rail
Thinking out of the box
I have large feet ... size 10. It's very hard for me to find reasonable storage for my shoes because storage boxes are never long enough. I know Elfa makes shelves for shoes and they have the gliding shoe rack, but this spot in my closet wasn't deep enough for those, additionally the shelf would make my closet feel more crowded, so I used this double rail for my heels. I LOVE it. I can see all of my shoes! And I found shoes in boxes I didn't realize I had :)

Handy and attractive
I love this piece, and I'm surprised no one else has commented on it yet. It will serve the same purpose as a backstop bar, but gives broader coverage. My Elfa solution goes along a wall and continues (double sided) into a large open archway between the family room and playroom. I like this bar as a place to hang up my kids' drawings for temporary display. When there are no pictures up, I can still see through the open space to keep an eye on what they are doing in the next room.
It is also useful as a trellis to train the long branches on some houseplants we display on upper shelves. I had to use a shelf across a three foot gap, but I wish I could use a larger size of the double rail. It would work perfectly for the plants there.
I want the double rail in a three foot width, too, please!
