Get rid of all that clutter with this easy-to-make D.I.Y. shoe rack. The simple design works well in a kid’s bedroom or as part of a walk-in-wardrobe.
The size of the shoe rack you make depends on the size of your shoe collection. Before you start cutting timber, spread your shoes out on the plank and mark where you want to position the supports.
When you’ve marked out the number of supports you need, take your handsaw and cut out the supports as many as required.
Handy Hint:A successful project is all in the planning, so it’s a good idea to draw up how you want the finished rack to look on paper first.
You can make your shoe rack structure stronger by staggering the supports in a “brickwork” formation as pictured.
When you've marked out where the supports need to go, line them up on your plank and pre-drill 3 holes for your screws - one at the corners of the supports and one in the centre. Then screw the supports in place.
When the shelves supports are securely in place, screw the two shelves together at the supports. When you’re done you can either stain or paint the rack to suit your wardrobe.
