Girls Just Wanna Have.. Another Shoe Rack

Picture of Girls Just Wanna Have.. Another Shoe Rack
Can a girl have too many pairs of shoes? Can she?!

I don't know what it is about shoes.. I mean, take a look at your feet. If you're like me, you have abnormally short, stubby toes.. you're desperately in need of a good pedicure.. and you have a heel that screams "Call That Infomercial And Get Me That PediEgg!!!!"

Ohh but when it comes to shoes, I have to admit, my feet win the prize for Best Dressed. Unfortunately, not many of us own a Carrie Bradshaw-sized closet with walls devoted exclusively for our humble collection of footwear.

Step 1: More Shoes = Bigger Box

So here's what you need to make your own display rack to showcase your dearly beloved shoes:

Cardboard Box
Flat Wooden Dowels
Decorative Paper
Plastic Adhesive Roll
Glue Gun
Exact-O Knife
Ruler

Step 2: Deconstruction

The shelf you'll be creating for your shoe rack will be made with one side of the box.

Step 3: Structural Support

Some boxes tend to be more flimsy than others. To counter these minor deformities, I suggest placing wooden dowels for more support. Placing them horizontally across the bottom will ensure the safety of your shoes.

Note: Bunny not included.

Step 4: Curb Appeal

No one needs to know that you hi-jacked your box from the grocery store around the block. With some decorative paper and plenty of glue, give your shoe rack a chance to be as glam as your shoes.

Step 5: Waterproofing

Being thrifty with DIY items such as this, there definitely comes a cost. So rather than having your shoe rack disintegrate under the soles of your rain boots, line the surface with some sort of waterproofing material.

ie. ScotchGard, Saran Wrap, Clear Acrylic Spray Paint...

Step 6: Organized Shelving = Room For More Shoes!

The more shoe racks you make, the more room you have to expand your collection!
