Build a Shoe Organizer Picture

FamilyHandyman.com has this Inexpensive Shoe Organizer made from wooden dowels and 1 inch lumber. Look carefully at the photo with the hole measurements. The 5 inches to the center of the second hole looks like it should be from the left edge of the board and not from the middle of the first hole. Draw your measurements on a paper template first to make sure the holes work.

Entryway Storage Organizer Picture

I like this adjustable shelf Entryway Organizer from FamilyHandyman.com. It has places for shoes, coats and other entryway odds and ends. The shelves are adjustable along most of the height so it gives you many options for the three divided sections. One section could have no shelves so you can hang coats. They use pine panel, finished plywood and clear pine lumber. This Hall Organizer is 7 feet tall, 4 feet wide and 17 1/4 inches deep.

The author gives detailed instruction on building this Large Shoe Rack with a materials and tools list, a detailed cutting list and 10 step-by-step instructions with photos.
