This simple, narrow-profile shoe rack relies on boards of alternating widths to keep shoes in place. Leaving about two inches between each upper and lower plank will let most shoes fit snugly without getting crushed. Use small L-brackets to attach the rack to an entryway or interior closet wall.
If the Shoe Fits...
An empty paint can is the perfect size to hold a pair of shoes, and when mounted to the wall it makes a handy cubby. To re-create this idea with an old can, remove the labels with household ammonia. Or, go to almost any home improvement store and round up some empty cans for a few dollars apiece.
