Build a shoe rack with wooden pallets
Do not be afraid of DIY, especially if we are talking about a very simple manual work to perform. In this section, we will give you all the information you need to know to build a shoe rack using wooden pallets.
Carefully select pallets
Not just any shoe rack will do, because you must always keep in mind the space where you want to place the shoe rack. Depending on how big it is, you may want to choose a smaller or larger one. You should also make sure that the pallets are far enough apart so that your shoes can fit between them. It is not a trivial decision, since the final result will depend on it.
Prepare them well
If some parts of the pallet are chipped, use fine sandpaper to remove them, otherwise you may hurt yourself when you take out the pair of shoes you want to wear. We recommend using either a medium grit sandpaper or an electric sander for this process, as either will work for you.
Afterwards, you should varnish the pallets to keep the wood in good condition for a longer period of time. It is best to do this in an open space and let the varnish dry for the time indicated on the bottle or container it comes in. When it dries, if you want to give it a personal and artistic touch, you can take markers, brushes… to decorate it in your own way. Since you have done it, let it bear your stamp, right?
