How to Build a High Heel Shoe Rack

June 25, 2012

All the ladies who love shoes, raise your hands! 

Friends, I’d like to share with you my first project for HGTV is now online – it’s a two tiered high heel shoe rack I built from wood and dowel rods for my heels and painted in a fabulous shade of raspberry pink.

    This couldn’t have come at a better time! I’ve just cleared out lots of old pairs of shoes and was looking at my heels wondering how to store them. I sat down to have a break and check my favourite blogs and this is the first thing that pops up! Thank you!

    This is such a fabulous idea! I should have thought about doing this shoe rack myself before purchasing my pax wardrobe! If you didn’t use pink as your color, what is another color you would have chosen? Great post Amanda!

  19. Pretttttty! (Not just the rack!)

  20. GREAT instructions … and love the raspberry color! p.s. Out of the 25 inspirational pics, yours was def my fave :)

  21. Barbara says:

    No wonder the house is a mess! You’re spending all your time on this darling closet and even MORE time shopping for shoes!! Yes, I hate returning from a trip, especially when my husband had been left in charge of housekeeping for a few things. Does he really eat on the floor!? The travertine sure looks like it!

  22. Barbara says:

    Good thing my husband won’t read this! Maybe he wouldn’t understand it, with all the typo’s!

  23. I see several pairs of shoes I would like shipped to VA, please. ;) Love the shoe rack, and I really love that you chose to paint it a fun color. It stands out in a good way!

  24. Cass says:
