DIY Industrial Shoe Rack


metal and wood shoe rack
My other half and I have been living in our 325 square foot apartment for a year and a half… but we just now realized that we don’t have any storage for our every day sneakers! So, when my friends at Kreg asked me to partner on a project for Build Something‘s website, I jumped at the opportunity to make us a West Elm inspired industrial shoe rack for our apartment. This project cost me around $30 in material, and took one day to make! Not too bad for a functional piece of furniture!

How To Make An Industrial Shoe Rack

If you’re someone who loves West Elm, but hates the prices, this is a great project for you. Inspired by their Industrial Shoe Rack, my version will save you over $100 (mostly because it’s faux metal)! I started this project on a Sunday morning, and was able to photograph it by Sunday evening!

Now our friends will have a place to put their shoes when they visit, instead of us piling sneakers in front of the door and digging our way to take out.
