DIY Shoe Rack

Thursday, February 28, 2013

I told y'all how my hubs surprised me with this shoe rack, remember? Although it was a complete surprise, I had been eyeing some DIY shoe racks on Pinterest....he just beat me to it! I won't lie, the thought of him laboring away instead of me was like hearing angels sing. Ahhhh (imagine me saying that in a soothing, relieving way).

He used all scrap wood that we had been storing in the garage. Free, just the way I like it!

Here were my inspirations:

The picture below pretty much details how he put this baby together. 

When it was all said and done, Chris informed me that he measured my heels to make sure that they would be able to fit on the middle rack in case I ran out of room on the top shelf. He is such a smarty pants!
I thought my shoes looked good when I first organized my closet. Ha! This is like adding a parking garage to an over-filled parking lot.
What do you think?! Did he do good?

  6. This is so cool! What did he use between the horizontal slats? Are those just more pieces of wood? I need a better way to organize my shoes. Thanks for hosting the link up!

    1. whoops-- I didn't realize that the link-up was on a separate post. my bad!

  7. Wow, super sweet of your husband to make that for you! That's the type of shoe rack I have, I love it cuz it doesn't take up a ton of floor space or use up a spot on the clothes rod.

    I read so many stories about bitcoin loss to scams. I will like to start by saying the agencies responsible for bitcoin security has really done nothing to help locate stolen or lost coins. In my situation my MacBook was hacked by someone that had access to my emails, i immediately contacted blockchain and they only wasted my time, after which i worked towards getting help else where, i was referred to consult a bitcoin expert who helped track and retrieved my 3.3 btc, for an agreed fee. I was more than grateful and willing to pay more after the job was done. Thankful i didnt fall victim and would like to recommend ( MORRIS GRAY 830 @ G maiL . COM )!!!

  18. Just want to share how I fixed my bad credit to an excellent credit. 2 years ago I was battling with issues of low credit, which made my life so miserable. I had a credit score of 601 (TransUnion), 580 (Equifax), 530 (Experian). I applied for an auto loan for the first time but was not approved due to my low credit score. No company agreed to employ me. There’s this special joy in my heart after I found PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST, my pastor recommending him after I explained to him about my credit situation. I contacted him explaining my credit problems. Duly he came up with a resounding proposal and guaranteed me of an EXCELLENT credit score of 811 (TransUnion), 803 (Equifax) and 815(Experian) which he did within 6 days. I got approved of my car and most especially got myself together. I strongly recommend him for your credit fix. Contact him by email: PINNACLECREDITSPECIALIST@GMAIL.COM / +1 (872) 265 2951.
