DIY - closet organizing shoe rack

DIY - closet organizing shoe rack

Sometimes I stumble across an idea that's so simple, and so awesome, I have to share it. This is one of those times.

Let's think about this idea for a minute. It's:

  • Inexpensive. I throw a few of these hangers into the recycle bin every week - you can't get much more inexpensive than that.
  • Easy. If I'm not overwhelmed by a project, it can't be that hard to do.
  • Functional. You couldn't fit that many pair of flip-flops in that small of an area without them being a complete mess. This gets them off the floor, paired up with each other, and easy to find the pair you're looking for.
  • Decorative. Jen prettied hers up with the little decorative bow-ribbon-thingy, but even without the decoration, it would still add a splash of color to your closet. (Most girls in phoenix have a pair in every color, right?)

I think it wins on all four counts. How about you - are you going to try this?
