I wanted to share this tall shoe cabinet hack I just finished.
I fell in love with a shoe tower from Restoration Hardware that they stopped making so I decided to make something similar. I bought a SEKTION high cabinet with 2 doors and 2 ASKERSUND cover panels. I assembled them as per instructions and added the cover panels to either side so the unit was freestanding.
Now I bought some drawer pulls from Amazon. For the 6 shelves, I measured 1 inch from the edge of each shelf and marked the spots where I would place the drawer pulls. I drilled holes and screwed in two drawer pulls on each shelf so my shoes wouldn’t fall out.
When placing the shelves into the high cabinet, I put them in so the back was one peg higher than the front. The shoes would be on a slant and easier to see. The drawer pulls stop them from sliding out the front.
