Wood, Metal and DIY Charm

When it comes to DIY shoe racks, we love the idea of bringing wood and metal together. It is such an elegant, natural and beautiful combination and for some reason, it never seems to fail even in modern entry rooms! Wood and metal shoe racks are easier to craft than you might imagine and you can get started with just a couple of wooden planks and metallic pipes. Of course, those who need more storage for their boots and additional space for coats and such can turn to the magic of wooden crates stacked ever so diligently.

Modern DIY Shoe Racks

From colorful boxes, crates and shiny metal pipes we move on to shoe racks that feel much more modern and polished. One of the first and most impressive ideas that come to mind here is the use of gorgeous ladders as smart shoe racks that work in multiple ways. The lazy susan shoe rack idea is another hit that saves ample space in its own unique way, while hanging baskets from the walls for you shoes gives you a new decorating option that moves away from usual racks.

Bags, Boxes and Other Cool Alternatives

We are always open to the idea of shoe racks being a bit more closed and bringing the comfort of open racks and closed cabinets together! That is why we love ideas like the shoe chest which unites the best of both worlds. But if you are still searching for other cool, cost-effective shoe stand ideas, then there are plenty below. Everything from a shoe rack crafted using old paint cans to PVC pipes and pallet shoe racks to those made from just old shoe boxes – there is a lot to take in and try out for every crafting enthusiast out there.
