Got messy shoes in your closet? This SUPER space saving and surprisingly sturdy DIY shoe rack holds more shoes in a small area than most shoe rack you can buy!
Can you guess what it's made of? Hint- We are not only making our homes more organized, we are doing it green and with style!

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!

And you do not need special tools, because, here's our material- old cardboard boxes!

Plus a little duct tape! Each module here is a triangular tube, the length and size of the module depends on your shoe size!

Glue or tape each row onto thick cardboard so they stay together.

Stack each row up, slide each pair of shoes in a triangular opening, one in front of the other. I also put an extra piece of thick cardboard on top to put some odd sized boots.

    What do you do with the top, raw, edge?

      Shouldn’t spend extra money for fabric; there’s always something that no longer fits or hasn’t been worn in awhile, so you get the chance to recycle old clothes and if you’re one of the very few that has nothing like that laying around, you can find an old dress, tablecloth or jeans, curtains sometimes for less than a $1 at a yard sale, so you would only need the spray glue which is fairly cheap as well and if buying it at Hobby Lobby use their 40% off coupon, so really barely any cost at all.
