I don’t know about you but everytime I buy a big shoe rack for me and my girlfriend, it breaks down after a month. But here’s a great way to make a shoe rack for any of your walls. I will be moving in 3 days to a new apartment so this is very handy and jit (just in time!) baby!

We bought poplar boards from the trims aisle of Home Depot. We chose boards 1/2 inch thick and 6 inches wide (1/2x6x3) for wide lower shelves and 1/2 inch thick and 3 inches wide (1/2x3x3) narrow top shelves. We cut the wood to size (in our case 22 inches) with the handsaw in the store.

We also bought large and small L-brackets to attach the wood to our walls and appropriate hardware: short screws to attach the brackets to the wood planks (.5 inch), longer screws and plastic drywall anchors to attach the brackets to the walls. I think we used 1.5-inch #6
