Shoe Storage

Spontan x 6 = shoe rack

Materials: Six Spontan magazine racks

Description: We were after a shoe rack behind the laundry door but couldn’t find exactly what we wanted. Upon seeing the Ikea magazine rack I realised this would be perfect (space efficient, flexible, economical) for our shoe rack.

I drilled 6 Spontan magazine racks to the wall space, overlapping them to fit (this is fine, they are flexible) and voila! The Great Wall of Shoe was born!

    Very clever… also loving the fact that I own the same pair of shoes as you do (middle pair on top). They are absolutely gorgeous :)

    Even if some people say, it isn´t really a hack, it´s a great idea! I would´ve never come to this! ^^

    What about edges? Seems like they can scratch boots…

  4. A complementary hack for this would be to put two VURM wine racks above, spaced about a foot apart and used as umbrella racks/coat hooks similar to Zieak’s Towel Rack.

      Brilliant idea! Just a shame we don’t have a need for that many umbrellas living here in west oz :o )

    • LOL. I suppose not. Living in Oregon will get you thinking about rain. But then again, we’re so used to the kind of rain we get (mostly light drizzle; I call it coastal mist – ‘missed the coast and hit us’), you hardly see an umbrella. How about hats?
