DIY Lazy Susan Shoe Storage

Too small a closet. Too many shoes. Too much frustration. A simple yet all too common tale. It is for me anyways. Someday I will have a ginormous walk in closet but sadly that day is not today. Until then…creative I must be. One of the most creative closet storage solutions I have seen lately is a Lazy Susan for shoes. And it’s a DIY! Bonus!

I’ve never even considered storing my shoes like this! Have you?! It would be perfect for a garage or mud room. Just think of how much space could be saved and how much clutter could be eliminated. Check out the fun pics and pick which one fits you best. I’m thinking pink with glitter.

Have you seen the movie Overboard? Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn. He builds a shoe rack that is a thing of dreams! It’s almost a Lazy Susan. Clever no matter what you call it.
