DIY Shoe Shelf


Materials: Ikea Faktum

Description: At our work place, we had 4 Faktum that should be thrown away.

I needed a bigger shoeshelf in my hall and therefore took them home and started to saw two of them down and found some stuff in Ikea that worked as bottoms to put my shoes on.

The other two Faktums I just put some new handles on and bought a “SÖDERFORS” to put on top of them two Faktums.





I also bought 6 legs for them.

    The top looks like a Broder shelf. Unfortunately I think Broder is discontinued.

    What material is that on top? Can’t seem to find it at IKEA, but it looks like some kind of metal mesh :)

    Thanks for the nice comments, and i agree with you on the holes Emil.
    What i like the most with the shelf after having gone through a wet and snowy winter is that its so easy to take up the bottom shelf and vacuum and clean it underneath.

  5. This is pretty nice, good work on the design! Bonus points for reusing something that was going to be thrown away. What I don’t like with Ikea shelves is the line of holes. They are perfect from a functional perspective but visually they are very ugly, in my opinion.

    I love that you can put your wet or muddy shoes on the bottom and cleaner ones on top. Plus this is such a cool looking shoe rack! I especially like the counter next to it. This would be perfect for interior design in Manhattan NY ( since there’s not much space, at least, not in my apartment. ;)
