But whatever your feelings about shoes are, it's a safe bet that they have become an organizational issue for you at some point. Perhaps your kids have a habit of leaving their shoes in the middle of the floor where you can trip over them. Or perhaps your closet floor is a mess of shoes and it takes forever to find the pair you are looking for. For those of you who like DIY projects, preferring to make things rather than going to a store, a PVC shoe rack is perfect for you.
PVC Pipe is sturdy, inexpensive, and it comes in many sizes - it's the secret weapon of DIY projects because of its versatility. In fact, we've found three great DIY PVC shoe racks that show off just how versatile it is.
