Slick & Modern Wall-Mounted Shoe Tree – from a Pot Lid Holder
Materials: RATIONELL VARIERA pot lid organizer
Description: I wanted a space-saving way to store a few of my sneakers. I was coveting one of the many modern solutions that are available, but alas, I was troubled by the high prices!
I scoured the IKEA website to find a hackable product — and lo! — I found RATIONELL VARIERA pot lid organizer. The light bulb went off in my head!
The RATIONELL VARIERA pot lid organizer is fully adjustable, so I simply made it the length I needed so it would work for my shoes. Then, I attached it to the wall with a drywall hook and VOILA! I had a modern (and very slick, if I do say so myself) shoe tree for my colourful sneakers. Easy peasy and oh-so inexpensive.
