Regular hanging shoe racks aren’t that space saving, are they?
And the “shoe cubbies” are usually hard to get shoes in and out of anyway. Besides, it’s kinda hard to see what’s hiding back there, isn’t it?
Problem solved. If you have any available wall space, this truly space saving idea will make you want to rip all your shoes out of the hanging rack and hang them on the wall – easy to see them all and easy to get them on and off their shelf.

Here’s the deal – it’s a Do-It-Yourselfer. Can’t find hanging shelves like this anywhere, but fortunately the ingredients for success are right here:
- 8′ base molding
- 8′ crown molding
- Spray paint them – (outlet for creativity… think about it)
- Wood glue the crown molding onto the base molding – use a finish nail to hold them in place while drying
- Install using 2 screws to secure them into wall studs
The smarty-pants handy man or woman who created this should be recognized as a true hero. Unfortunately, the original idea has been repinned via Pinterest so many times that they’ll have to remain unnamed and the wonder of Pinterest takes the applause.
