I saw a shoe rack on pintrest (sorry I don't have the link) and decided my closet had to have my own version of it.  I dragged the boyfriend to Lowes (through do you really have to ever drag a guy to a place where they sell tools?) for some 6 inch pvc. He is far better with power tools than I am so I then had him cut the pvc in 12 inch long section.  As he cut, I glued the pieces together with normal pvc glue.  I glued each row then glued one row on top of another.  The final step was to attached a piece of wood on top to hold the boots. 

I love how it turned out...


I had some leftovers and decided my awesome shoe rack required a closet makeover.  I have a scarf obsession and never had a good way to store them.  I thought that if I could cut the pvc in 1 inch slices, tie them together and then hang it from the wall somehow I could then put the scarves through the pvc.  I was right, it is so useful and holds every one of my million scarves.  I recently saw a similar idea on pintrest...I thought I was unique but its still cool  Smiley







yay for closet makeovers!

Nice job. About how much did you spend? (if you don't mind me asking)

I spent right around $60.  After I finished my father said that yo can go to the electrical department and find a similar product at 1/2 the price.  I'll ask him exactly what it and update this post when I have it...I am glad you like it!
