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.

      Great idea for use of extra boxes!

      For a sturdy top or in between shelves, how about old board game boards.

      Can’t wait to make and get the shoes organized!!

    This looks so easy and very practical. I can't wait to put all that cardboard from online ordered Christmas gifts to good use.

      Exactly what I was thinking! When I saw "Amazon" on her cardboard box I lol. ! I so should buy stock in Amazon boxes and also have no closet space so how cool was this idea? :)
