Crate Shoe Storage

The new year is the perfect time to purge and reorganize! Our house doesn't have much closet space and the little space we have was being overtaken by my massive shoe collection. After donating and discarding the shoes that haven't been worn in the past year, I constructed this shoe storage display using the large Crates and Pallet wooden crates. I even used the smaller crates to organize and display my son's growing shoe collection.


Steps


First, I measured the interior space of the small wooden crate and used my slide miter saw to cut a 1x4 and a 1x2 board at 10-5/16".

Next, I used my Airstrike brad nailer to nail the 1x4 and 1x2 boards inside the crate.

By doing so, I created an additional shelf in the crate.

The small wooden crates with the extra shelf displays my son's shoes beautifully!

For my shoe display, I used the large wooden crates and nailed them to the wall using my Airstrike Finish Nailer. Because we're renting our home and are always thinking of temporary solutions, I opted to nail the crates instead of screw them into studs in the wall. However, for a sturdier option, I would recommend screwing the crates into the studs.
