Framed Fabric Shoe Organizer

It's a New Year and that means it's time to get organized, right? Well, our master closet was a sad state of affairs. After purging out all the 'unnecessary' stuff, we were left with a blank wall. We were determined to maximize the use of space in our tiny walk-in.
Time: 1 Hours Cost: $10 Difficulty: Easy
Using some cotton fabric, basic wood trim from the hardware store, staples and a nail gun, we created a large scale 'frame'. Measure and hang the fabric first with a few of the staples, then position the trim afterwards to make sure it's all straight. Dan helped me mitre the corners. We just used super basic MDF trim.
Then cut a few slits in the fabric where you want your hanging hardware to go. We used these small hooks for dowels and a few picture hangers as well. Just make sure you measure your shoes first :)
These dowels were hung approximately 10" apart. Use the other hooks to hang accessories! I also added a gold gilded mirror.
Et voila! For more details on this project click through to our blog... AND then check out the updates we've made in the last year :) Shortly after this organizing project, we doubled the size of this closet...and added in more space for shoes ;) Happy Organizing HTers xoxo

    Peg board works well for that too. You can paint it any color.

      @Upstate NYer Good idea, and if you hung the dowels off of peg hooks, you could rearrange or add to it at any time.
