Decorate your shoe rack with a wood finish

A simple wood finish will give your shoe rack a rustic, natural look. It’s a classic look that works well in any room. Plus, you can easily customize it to match your style. Start by picking out a wood stain or paint colour that you love. You can also choose a darker stain or paint colour to add more depth to the design.

If you’re unsure which colour to choose, try using a sample swatch of paint or stain on a piece of scrap wood. Once you’ve chosen a colour, use a brush and brush the colour onto the surface of the shoe rack. Use a rag or paper towel to wipe off any excess.

Avoid using water because it will dilute the stain and change the colour. Once the colour is on the rack, let it dry completely before adding any hardware. Then, apply a clear coat of varnish to protect the wood.

Use decorative shoe racks to create a pop of colour

A decorative element to your shoe rack can add a fun and unexpected touch to your space. A wooden or metal basket or box can be used to hold shoes. For example, you could use a metal basket with a wooden bottom and sides to hold your sneakers.

You can also use a small tray to display your favourite pair of heels. You can buy these trays at a craft store or even a dollar store. Positively charge your shoe collection by placing a candle inside the tray. This will give the shoes a cozy glow.

Add a mirror to your shoe rack

Mirrors are great for making a small space seem more significant. And they can brighten up a shoe rack.

Start by choosing a mirror that will fit your shoe rack. Then, mount it to the wall. Use adhesive-backed hooks or brackets to attach the mirror to the back of the rack. Finally, hang the mirror so that it reflects light into the shoes.

Use a decorative shoe rack to showcase your shoes

There’s nothing better than displaying your favourite pair of shoes in front of a mirror. So why not make this happen?

You’ll need a shoe rack to do it.

Choose a shoe rack that matches your decor to make this look easy. If you’re using a wood finish, choose a wood stain or paint colour that complements your other furniture. You can also choose a dark stain or paint colour to add more depth to the design.

Once you’ve chosen a colour, use a brush and brush the colour onto the surface of the shoe rack. Use a rag or paper towel to wipe off any excess. Let the rack dry completely before adding any hardware. Then, apply a clear coat of varnish to protect the wood.


How to Make a DIY Shoe Rack

If you’re anything like me, your shoe collection is constantly growing. And if you’re also like me, you don’t have a lot of storage space to keep them all in. That’s why I came up with this easy DIY solution for how to make a shoe rack. With just a few supplies and simple instructions, you can create a functional and stylish way to store your shoes.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • One piece of plywood (or other sturdy material)
  • Four lower cabinets or shelves
  • Two upper cabinets or shelves (optional)
  • 16 screws
  • 16 washers
  • 8 L-brackets


  1. Begin by measuring the length and width of your piece of plywood. Cut the plywood to size if necessary.
  2. Place the lower cabinets or shelves upside down on the ground. Line up the edges of the plywood with the edges of the cabinets or shelves, ensuring that there is an equal amount of space on either side.
  3. Drill four holes through the plywood and into each cabinet or shelf. Be sure to predrill the holes so they are slightly smaller than the screws you will be using. This will prevent the wood from splitting when you screw it in place.
  4. Attach the plywood to the cabinets or shelves using screws and washers.
  5. Place the upper cabinets or shelves, lining up the edges with the lower cabinets or shelves. Drill holes and attach using screws and washers.
  6. Finally, attach the L-brackets to the inside corners of the upper cabinets or shelves for added stability.

And that’s it! Your DIY shoe rack is now complete. You can use it to store your shoes neatly out of the way, and you can even use it to display a few pairs if you like. With this easy project, you’ll never have to worry about where to put your shoes again.

 How to Make a Wooden Shoe Rack

If you’re like most people, your home is probably cluttered with shoes. But don’t worry, we have the perfect solution for you! Follow these simple steps to make your wooden shoe rack, and your home will be neat.

  1. Start by measuring the area where you want to put your shoe rack. You’ll need to know the dimensions to cut your wood accordingly.
  2. Cut four pieces of wood to the correct size using a saw. Make sure they are all the same size, or else your shoe rack will be crooked.
  3. Take two pieces of wood and nail them together at one end using a hammer. Then, do the same with the remaining two pieces of wood.
  4. Once you have two pairs of interconnected wood, take one pair and nail it to the wall using large nails. Make sure that the nails are driven in deeply so that your shoe rack is secure.
  5. Now, place your other pair of interconnected wood on top of the first pair (which is nailed to the wall). Nail this second pair in place as well, and your shoe rack is now complete!
  6. Finally, add your shoes! Arrange them neatly on the shelves, and enjoy your newly organized home.
