Shoe rack

Shoe rack

Between me and Roxy (way more Roxy), we have quite a bit of shoes in our house. "Our regulars" kind of just pile up by the front door so I made this little shoe rack today after work. It mounts to the bottom of our floating desk/bench. I never really did a good post on the desk bench, because I made it right before I started the blog. It's basically a curving top mounted to the wall. The low spot is a bench where you can sit, and the higher is a desk top with a chair for a laptop computer or reading. It's made out of angle-iron and left over pieces from our old porch deck. Anyways, I made the shoe rack out of 1/2" steel rod and 1" flat bar, no surprises here.

Just two bent pieces of steel welded to a bar, the front railing is just slightly lower than the back to set the shoes at an angle. I sprayed clear finish over the metal to protect, yet keep the look of the raw steel.

Thanks guys, hopefully I can make something to store the rest of Roxy’s shoes soon. It won’t be easy….

LOVE!! I always have shoes by the door too… unfortunately my bf isn’t quite as saavy with building furniture as you are. This bench/desk combo was the best, and now it’s better with the shoes! Jealous!

First off, congrats on being featured on Apartment Therapy. I found your blog via there. Great projects, and this one is genius. I really like the desk/bench. I’ve got to build something similar. Wonderful blog.
