The biggest "Aha!" behind the design of this shoe rack is - we do not need to see BOTH shoes on a shoe rack! They can be placed one behind the other, so we can utilize the depth of a standard closet!

      If you follow the link to the blog, the dimensions are listed...21"x24". It would also depend on your shoe size. A compartment built for a small child could be Done on a smaller scale.

    I have an enormous collection of "year round" nutcrackers of all shapes and sizes. I use a system originally made for shoes and purses much like this for the smaller ones.... but your idea has got me thinking about the ability to customize

  • Andi Cullins

    I like this idea but I'm worried about how cardboard would hold up over time. Has anyone tired covering the tubes with contact paper?
