Materials: two Gorm uprights, four Gorm shelves, two Gorm corner brackets, Gorm bolts, hammer, screwdriver, saw, miter box, nails, electric drill

Description: My house has just been renovated and I'm working out the best way to store things. I decided this space 56" long by 12" wide by 24" tall in my new walk-in-closet/extra library space would be perfect for a double-decker shoe rack. Because of the length, none of the ready made racks I looked at made efficient enough use of the space or had enough room for all my shoes and boots, plus they all cost more than the zero dollars I wanted to spend.

A few weeks earlier, I'd added corner shelves to one of my old Gorm units and found myself short one upright. My local Ikea no longer sells single uprights so I bought a whole Gorm unit (4 uprights, 4 shelves) to get the one upright I needed. This left me with three uprights and four shelves I had no immediate plans for. I realized the leftover Gorm pieces would be perfect for the shoe rack since they would require little in the way of tools or technical skills to achieve the desired result.
