Not Martha had a shoe dilemma in her cramped back hallway. She found the answer with the slick, wall attached j-me shoe rack, a single piece of bent stainless steel that holds just the tips of your shoes. Big problem-it was 5 inches too long for N.M’s back hallway wall. She improvised and came up with her own brilliant, space-saving DIY version.
After searching the aisles, she decided on “a pair of boards sliced so the top one is narrower and the bottom one is wider”. Easy enough, but it still took some time and planning. Here’s what you need to get started:
1/2″ x 6″ boards
small and large L brackets
screws and wall anchors
sandpaper, paint or stain
tools to attach
After it was all said and done, Not Martha says she would have closed down the 5 1/2″ gap between the pairs of shelves to 3″ and she would have added a third pair of shelves.
