Learn How To Build a Shoe Hangershoe

We had a small plastic tray in our entry way, for those with dirty shoes, etc. to hang them when they came into the house.  I was so tired of shoes just being thrown and other things being added to it, I wanted to make a change.  I had seen something like this in a home improvement magazine and thought it would be fun to try.  If you have the time, and the tools, it’s pretty easy to make.  You can also change it up however you want, different colors, different hooks, etc.

I had some help from my husband and our son, with leveling, and marking the wall.  I think that the hardest part was waiting for the paint to dry! 🙂   What do you think of it – do you think that it’s something that your family could use?  Let me know in the comments below.

I hope you like it!! Have a blessed day, and please be sure to comment on, and share this craft on your social media channels – thanks!!

Learn How To Build a Shoe Hanger


Materials/Tools Used:

  • Piece of Wood
  • Paint
  • Hooks
  • Screws
  • Drill
  • Screwdriver
  • Level
  • & Time!

Instructions:

I started by using a stud finder, on the wall that I was going to attach the shoe hanger.

Next, after I had marked the center of the two (2) studs, on the wall that I would be attaching the board to, I had my son make marks on the piece of wood (I used about a 48″ piece of oak threshold), where I would drill the holes for screwing to the wall.

After that, I used a countersink drill bit to make the two (2) holes where the screws would go in.  This allows the screw head to be flush with the piece of wood.

Next, I used some paint to paint the wood to match the area where I was going to install it.  How many coats you use, depends on how thick you paint it and the color that you are using.

After the paint had dried, I used my yard stick to plot out where I would attach the coat hooks.  Making sure to evenly space them for the shoes to hang freely.

Once I had all of the marks on the board, I attached each hook to the piece of wood.  I made sure to have the screws even and secure.

After that, my husband helped me to level the piece to attach it to our wall.  Once the piece is level, just insert the screws and make sure that they are secure to the stud behind the wall.  Once they were in, I just used a bit of paint to hide the screw heads.

Now you can have a nice place to store your shoes and even allow them to dry out better.  With the winter supposedly going to be a harsh one, I want to make sure that we aren’t putting on wet shoes in a few months!  I hope you like it!  Please take a minute to leave me a comment, and let me know what you would do different, or what you would add, etc.  Be sure to tweet, pin, share, etc. – thank you!!

[…] So finally, I found a way to take care of all of that, and to just DIY my own option to clean up the mess, make the entryway more organized and just have it look great.  I did it by making this “Shoe Hanger“: […]

This is SO SMART!! I have cubbies for my kids’ shoes, but I just toss mine next to the couch.

I need this in my entry way! But I’d need it about 3 times bigger for my guys’ shoes.

This also saves space behind the door. I have been trying to find something that I like for shoes at the entry way. TO hold the shoes and not look horrible. This looks nice. It’s fairly easy to make. Thanks for sharing!

What a great way to get those pesky shoes off the floor. I feel like I’m always tripping over them!

Oh this would be awesome in our entryway. Great job! This will be so nice when it starts snowing.

I love this project, Jamie! I’m so tired of shoes all over our house. We are obsessive about people taking their shoes off because we have white carpet throughout our house. (I’m not sure who’s crazy idea that was!) There are piles at all doors. I may have to get my husband started on one of these for the front door visitors :).

We’ve tried a few different ways to place our shoes by the entryway so I’m always looking for practical ideas where they won’t be in the way. I like this, so much better on the wall than on the ground! Thanks for sharing it!

We definitely need something like this. I wish Hubs was handy though.
