Simple Shoe Rack
We run our home Japanese style, no shoes in the house. We had an aluminum pole tented shoe rack that was showing wear and tear. I wanted to make a simple shoe rack that would be sturdy enough for all our shoes. All you need are some 2x4’s and some 1/2” plywood and maybe some scrap pieces of wood from the wood pile.
This is 43” high, just under 3’ wide, 12” deep.. The shelves are hung using scrap 1/2” scrap wood I had lying around cut into 2” X 12” pieces. The sides are done using 2” x 4” studs cut at 43” high. I also used the extra 2”x 4“ pieces for each corner of the unit. I put one shelf on the floor because I did not want dog hair and stuff getting under it. Overal, I am happy with this project and it took only a few hours to make and stain. We let it sit for a few days to fully dry as we weather proofed it as well since wet shows might be put on it.
Added plywood on back for stability and to add a different look.
Another view in the sun.
Shelf with shoes. Mission complete!!
