Since it’s made out of plywood, this is a very affordable DIY pallet project. You can adjust the dimensions to fit as many shoes as you want. You can even make special slots to fit your longer shoes; so, no more squished boots! Once you’re done building, paint or stain your new DIY shoe holder in a beautiful shade to complete the look. Now, you don’t have to waste time hunting around for your shoes anymore.

This looks so easy! I am going to have to do something like this, for all my kids shoes in the entryway. Once those are cleaned up, maybe I can get something done to hang the kids backpacks on too! I would not just paint it white though, I need some color!

This looks like the perfect shoe organizer. You can even cover it if you so desire to hide the face that you have shoes there. Or if you make it deep enough, you can put doors on it. I guess I am making a trip to Home Depot. My son or brother will put it together for me. I have one of those shoe organizers hanging in the closet but this is much better. Thank you for the idea.

This Affordable DIY Shoe Organizer is near and well organized but I like this kind inside a room, not out in the open for a lot of people to see. This is okay if located in your room, the children's room or in a walk in closet.

This is just the best and most practical idea and project ever! I love the design of this, and it could also work for not only shoes, but you could make one for books, sports equip,net such as tennis or golf or baseballs, mitts, and shin guards, etc. Or how about the sewing or craft room? These shelves would be a great way to,sort supplies yet have them at the ready in a neat and orderly fashion! Great project idea!

This is something we need in our home because we have five of us and between boots, shoes, and dress shoes, we have a ton of footwear. You add in flip flops and sandals and you have a mess in the house. What a great way to organize the shoes in one neat area.

I have shoes EVERYWHERE! It's become a bit of a problem. This simple organizer would be the perfect solution. Plus, I love how it looks like a piece of furniture.
