Do you have a huge collection of shoes with all the clutter in the front entrance of your home as well as your closets? Well, it means that you extremely need this DIY project. You can make a Lazy Susan shoe rack for organizing and also displaying your shoes. This is a handy furniture that will make you able to store shoes in one dependable location around your home.
Some DIY designers recommend that you should use plywood disks. Why so? You need to cut them out of the wooden sheet. Therefore, you will need the proper tools. Besides, this project is for you who have enough experience of carpentry skills because doing the cutouts can be the challenge.
It does not a big deal if you do not use plywood disks. You can still use some upcycled materials like reclaimed wooden wire spools in your home. You need to make the hole in the middle of the spool around. After that, each of the dividers needs specialty picture hangers to screw. This is what you need to save more time, money and space.
Just make sure that before doing this DIY project, you should go to a decent hardware store to pick up some materials you will need.
