My Shoe Shelf!

I hope everyone had a great weekend.

This past weekend was beautiful!! I had to take advantage of the amazing weather and get some stuff done outside. One of them being making and painting new shelves for my shoe shelf!

Some of you might remember when I moved into my little sisters room!

Well my shoe collection has grown a little bit since then and I needed to add a few more shelves!

Brandon (From Simplee Green) had some extra selves in his basement that he was going to be getting rid of, so I asked him to if I could have them. Being the great guy that he is, of course he said yes!

First I checked to make sure that they were the same depth! They were! :)


Then I drew a line where it needed to be cut!

Here comes the easy part!!! I had my dad cut the wood for me LOL!

Once the selves were all cut…


I wiped them down with my favorite organic cleaner Shaklee Basic H.

Using the all purpose cleaner!

Next I primed the shelves!

I like to use Kilz primer.

Once the primer was dry, I painted the shelves white with Behr paint!

Make sure the shelves are completely dry before putting the selves on the shelf!
I used some of our shelf hooks to add the additional shelves! 


Now I can fit all of my shoes on my shelf… for now!


What do you think?

How do you organize your shoes? 

Post a link and I would love to check it out!!


  1. I really need to make something for my shoes. Right now I have them in baskets and that is just not working so well.

  2. I know what you mean. I use to have the same problem! It does make it a lot easier to pick out what I am going to wear. Plus when it comes to trying to find the other shoe when I am in a hurry because it always seemed like I could only find one shoe!

  3. I hope you don't mind I am using your great shoe idea in my post tomorrow. please check it out
    Thanks Kayla

  4. My Shoes are on similar shelves.
