If you are like most people and you spend a lot of time trying to keep your shoe organized and at the same time protecting it from all the objects that can slip on it or that can affect it. This at least seems to make sense considering the fact that it’s pretty tricky to do exactly what you need and to see the results in case you’re having a hard time finding the right products. However, it all eventually gets better and you get to use your creativity to see what you can save.
Take a look at these 10 DIY shoe racks that you can build yourself and start using some of your favorite models. Some of them might not seem like something that would really belong in your home nowadays but you can use them in a surprisingly surprising way. In case you’re wondering where you can find a simple shoe rack, scroll down for a few ideas.
The easiest and most popular shoe organizer you can build is made out of wooden pallets. For such a project you need a big pallet and six wooden pallets. You’ll also need a drill, screws, a nail gun and two handles. The handle rods will most likely be up on the pallets. It’s a very simple project and the hardest part will be choosing the one you want to use. Once you’re done making the rack, now all the little things are time-consuming. You might as well go with simple designs that suit your needs.
For an entryway heavy-duty shoe stand or cabinet, a simple cable cording would be enough. This version has five holes in the wooden pallets, all the inside of which is now covered in wood shingles. Because of the shape of the shoe rack, installation is easy. Once you’re done putting this part together, you can use leather straps to secure it to the decking.
If you want to compartmentalize your shoe rack, you can use boxes that are just as practical as those you might find in stores. As you’ll see in the examples for this project, the boxes form a V-shaped frame around which you can add more shelves or shelves if you’d like. The rack can be easily attached to the wall and integrated into a wall unit.
For a more professional look, you can hide the hooks and rails in plain concrete. The idea here is to create a modular storage system that you can use in your home. It’s a cheap and versatile system that you can use for various different things.
If you don’t want your entryway to look like a nursery, then a simple shoe rack made from cans can be just what you need. You don’t have to change anything about it. Just find a way to keep everything in place.
As practical and functional as the stairs, the flooring is equally important. A simple rack made of cans can solve your storage problems if it’s all about thin materials and simple designs.
The perforations between the steel rods don’t allow anything to be open because this way you can’t accidentally get your hands on the thing. Still, you can close them easily to prevent accidents. The perforations and the glass door make the perfect frame for the chandelier. In this case, the chandelier includes its focal point in its design. A simple pendant lamp along with a crystal cage lamp plus the white wands ensure a cohesive décor.
For the dining room, you can make a vertical wardrobe that goes all the way up to the ceiling. If not, you could always use a ladder for more height. Mount it on the wall and you’ll have a really dramatic bedroom.
The same combination of materials can be used when you design a wardrobe for the kids’ room. Hang rods with rope, insert light hives and mount under the rods from where the clothes get moved closer.
The same combination of materials can be used when you decide to use different colors for the nursery room. Use light blue, dark blue and yellow. The yellow rug will usually be used in here. And then there’s also the occasional bathroom where this color combo is more than suitable.
