Got an old ladder out in the garage? Before you consider sending it to the junk yard, turn it into a trendy project! Sand the wood and then paint the ladder a fun color (we love the fresh look of white) and once dry, you can hang your pumps from the ladder rungs easily.
The space under your bed is under utilized…so why not fill it with shoes? These pallet racks are easy to make from reclaimed wood and won’t take up any much-needed space in your bedroom.
Use an old pallet (you can get one for free at some hardware stores) to make a shoe rack…although “make” is a strong word. Simply lean the pallet against a wall and stick shoes into the slots! Easy as that. Especially perfect for pliable shoes like kids’ shoes or sneakers.
