How To...Make a Space Saving Shoe rack

Pin it button
We've been hunting for a cool space-saving shoe rack for months now--we're sick of our entryway looking like a perpetual tornado of shoes! Unfortunately, with the way the front door opens, space is pretty limited so our shoes end up piled up on top of each other until we get motivated to put them away. Thanks to the Megan and Scott at Not Martha, they've come up with their own DIY solution to a modern shoe rack for their tiny entryway.

Inspired by the J-Me Shoe Rack from DWR, Megan and Scott designed theirs to fit perfectly within their space. Instead of metal to hold shoes by the toe, they decided on two different widths of poplar boards and L-brackets spaced a few inches apart.

Check out the entire process (including a great "What I Would Have Done Differently" section!) on their blog, Not Martha.
