Project Day: Vintage Shoe Rack Organiser




Need extra storage room and have no more room left? Sounds like me. How about a nifty vintage shoe rack turned craft holder?
I had been meaning to show you this project of mine for some time. It was a plastic vintage shoe rack I purchased from Lifeline for $3.00. I just loved the pattern of the plastic. I had no idea what I was going to do with it until I bought it home. It has now been transformed into a crafty organiser to hold all my bits and pieces.
These old shoe racks are perfect for holding all kinds of treasures. And you simply hang them on a wall! Instant wall art as well don't you think.
I hope this weekend is a joyous one. I hope it warms up for me. I am freezing!

  8. I love this idea. I have one on the back of my laundry room door. This is now my junk drawer. Now I see I need another one for my craft space right above my sewing machine. Perfect idea.
    Thank you!

  9. Yep, those are great to have. The best part you can see everything. Sort of like a crafting supply inspiration board.

  17. Wow Simone what a super, super idea. I have so many little bits and pieces all stowed away in drawers but then they are hard to see and that stifles creativity. This see through plastic is perfect! Thanks for the idea!
