In case you need a super quick shoe storage solution, here it is! Check out my DIY Easy Pallet Shoe Rack !ย 

 

 

People here know by now, I love to DIY and decorate! They are always on the supply~lookout for me, which is so nice and I’m so thankful! The other day, one of my friends called me super excited to tell me, she could get me 4 pallets for free! Wow! Yay, was I happy ๐Ÿ™‚ My husband came and helped me get them home, because these are some super big real heavy duty pallets, not like the one I put on my create station.ย

So, I got 4 of these babies, and I’m super excited! Who wouldn’t be!? And, yesterday morning was finally the time to get started with them. Well, with one of them. For a while now, I’ve been wanting to do something about our front entrance. We take off our shoes, and although I have a shoe cabinet inside, there are always shoes piled up in front of our door = messy! ย 

Well, not anymore! I used one of these pallets as a shoe rack for outside. Instead of having all those shoes lying around and looking so messy, they can be now just put in that pallet. It’s really not a big deal, to just put them there, and the whole entrance area looks a lot tidier!ย 

Best of all, no money was spent and didn’t need any power tools.

I painted the “inside” of the pallet with white paint I still had from previous projects. Just roughly and only the outer parts. It soaked in really quick, and the sun did the rest. So, within about half an hour, this was done and ready, to be put against the wall, next to my front door. The spot was almost meant for this it seams.

I stencilled “Shoes” on it and put my succulents inside the top. I planted them in loaf baking tins and they fit right into the top.

And now I still have three more pallets! I think, will use them for outside, because our front patio really needs something extra…but more about that another time! So what do you think about my DIY easy pallet shoe rack??

Thanks for stopping by!

    LOOOOVE this! I have those cookie sheets filled with rocks from the craft store for wet boots near my front door, but this is great! I have a place near where I live that always has stacks of pallets with a “free wood” sign, which I drool over..but have no way to get one home ๐Ÿ™ I think it’s time to recruit some friends! I also think I’ll add baskets to the top rather than succulents, for mail and keys and stuff.

I love your idea of adding baskets to the top for mail and keys and such! I rather have the plants, since it’s outside, but if I had it inside I’d totally copy your idea!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Yes, Nikki, pallets are out there and there are so many things to do with them. When I came up with this idea, I actually thought it was probably gonna end up on the “most~boring~pallet~project” list, because there isn’t much to it and it’s done in an hour or so. But girl, was I wrong! And it really is a great solution for us!

I never would have thought to use a pallet in this way but I really like this idea. My apartment is too small for one so I bought a couple of shelves to hold the shoes in. LOL!

    Katrin, that is just perfect. It demands to be called ‘kismet’, that pallet was meant to be claimed by you and turned into a shoe rack and it was sheer kismet that it fits so perfectly. It’s the perfect length and width! And good on you for thinking ‘shoe rack’! I’m always at a bit of a loss when faced with a pallet, in fact we gave away three lovely ones last year as I couldn’t quite figure out what to do. Wish I had held on to them a wee bit longer.

    Well done!

    Hugs, Lynn

    Katrin what a brilliant idea. You have solved your shoe problem and it looks very nice and tidy. The shoe stencil makes it all the more pulled together and the white color is just right to make it look sleek and nice. I also have pallets in my lobby but they are just taking up space. Thanks for the great inspiration!! This is a very smart solution.
