Boots 'n All - Storage Shoe Shelf

Introduction: Boots 'n All - Storage Shoe Shelf

About: DIY Storage Ideas and Plans Using wood brackets to create shelving systems, wall shelves, hang curtains, hang pictures, store shoes.

Build a DIY shoe rack that’s a nice piece of wood furniture that get shoes off the floor.

Got a lot of tall boots, rain boots or work boots and want your shoes to stand up? With height adjustable shelves you can accommodate all types and for all seasons. During the winter (wet, snow) months, move the shelves up and down to suit the height of your winter and ski boots.

Adjust the shelf heights all you like. But the bottom shelf should have enough of a gap off the floor so you can vacuum underneath.

Take advantage of the vertical space in your entryway and occupy the unused ‘dead’ space.

Even with a small or narrow space, you can build this shoe rack using shorter shelves.
