This photo-blog is as simple as I can present this – I made a shoe rack for the wife’s closet, and it’s a nice space-saving option that looks good. So easy!
In our home there are small spaces and we’re creative about making the most of what we have. In our master bedroom she has this small closet, and the floor is essentially covered in shoes – what’s a girl to do, right? I can’t blame her, there’s not much room.
I saw an idea on a blog (or Pinterest) about making a simple shoe rack that goes on the wall, and it was a great way to keep and display your shoes.
So I did it, and it turned out great! Super easy, and I think she likes it!
Here’s a few pictures, but it’s pretty easy to see what I’ve done. I used some wood trim pieces I got at Home Depot, a pack of 6 anchors/screws, and a roll of Friction Tape, found in the electric supply aisle at HD. I picked out a whole trim piece and had it cut in three, so I ended up with three sections – each 26″ long.
I pre-drilled holes (one on each end), and then placed them about 6 inches apart on the wall. I marked the spots for the holes and put the anchors in the wall. I did use a level, that’s important. I sanded each of pieces (the cut ends) so that was a clean look. I applied the friction tape to the top so the shoes won’t slip off. This also looks nice and neat, finished even.

The trim pieces can be painted as well, to match other pieces of furniture or a color of HER choice. Why not make it custom to her style?
Quick note on the wood trim– there are lots of styles to choose from at the hardware store, but you need a small enough piece so that the shoes touch the wall, and you want the top of the trim to have a FLAT edge. Look at the one I’m using – see how much clearance there is for the shoes to fit over? Just don’t get this HUGE piece of trim that the shoes can’t fit over, get it?
The trim is very important, you can match the style that’s already being used in the house if you wanted. Use this trim right to see more of it.
Happy wife = Happy Life
