Intro: Turn Any Door Into a Shoe Rack
This instructable is basically improvising/replacing those traditional, pricy shoe racks that hang on the door. I would say that ALMOST ALL people(80%) have the tools and materials needed for this project lying around their house. I'll save the long story of birth of my idea, unless you're curious. Great since it doesn't take up any closet space, because... well, it's right on your door! 1st instructable by the way! Very simple to do, perfect for the ladies & shoe lovers!!
Step 1: Materials You Will Need:
-a sharpie/writing utensil
-clear plastic tape/staple gun
And a door(s) and shoes obviously.
Step 2: Select Shoes & Cut Cardboard
Now just draw a straight line across the cardboard using your ruler, cut, and then put the cardboard evenly across your shoes, make sure there is a tight fit, but loose enough to take out the shoe easily. You can adjust by simply cutting the cardboard smaller until you have the perfect fit.
Step 3: Tape
Put 2 layers of tape per rack, big or small depending on the shoe size on each side.
Step 4: Finished!!
How simple was that?! Now just do this for any and every door you want, add/subtract as many as you need. When you get new shoes, make an extra one, get tired of it, simply tear it off the door. You probably just saved $20!! Plus tax for each rack!
And for those of us, like me...that dont like the ghetto cardboard look& simply decorate the racks or print out designs to tape over it. The best thing, just throw a nice curtain over the door thatll cover the shoes, which is what I do. Plus the curtain will keep a clean houses worst enemy from the shoes...DUST! Works best if you have those doors with windows on the top half like mine(so there is a reason for the curtain to be there).
