Just outside the door to the house in the garage is a perfect place to hang shoes, particularly running shoes and work boots — anything that gets dirty, muddy and wet. And you can build that shoe rack. It’s easy!
All you need is a 1-by-4. Just put some coat hooks on it and space them about four-and-a-half inches apart. The space between each pair of shoes is about five-and-a-half inches apart.
You could store boots on a shelf, but imagine how much more room you would need! That shelf would be sticking out into the garage about a foot or so. This 1-by-4 takes up almost no space at all.
More important, with the dirty shoes hanging here, you won’t drag in sand, dirt and mud into your home.
