As you may know if your read my blog on a regular basis I’m using one of our old lockers a shoe cabinet in the entry hall. The single shelf behind each door was ok for a while but both Wille and I seem to have accumulated lots of pairs of shoes this past year so I needed to figure out a way to maximize the space.
Enter these metal kitchen shelves.
At first I wasn’t sure if they’d fit but I had one in a cabinet in the actual kitchen so I tried that one and with a little bit of force I managed to squeeze fit it in. Almost too good to be true so I quickly ordered six more (so I could replace the one in the kitchen too).
Wille has bigger feet than I so in his section there are now three pairs of shoes behind each door. My feet are just smaller than the width of each compartment so I can fit four pairs inside. Love it.

Så himla smart och snyggt. Jag gillar som vanligt dina lösningar.
Love it! We have a shoe problem in our hallway, there just isn’t any furniture that would fit perfectly there. This cabinet or your is just beautiful – wish I could find something like that. The shelving idea is great, too!
oh i just love those moments when things just click (or squeeze) into place. so so satisfying!
The shoe locker looks great and I like the way you have managed to hang the keys in there too.
oh, i love it when it fits like that. brilliant solution. x
That is a perfect solution!!!
How do you do that?….Always finding the perfect solution!?…In a beautiful, organized way!!!
So tidy! We have a wire shoe rack just inside the garage door into the house and I was just noticing that the kids’ shoes are now longer than the shelf widths! Time to upgrade!
in the words of the A team ‘i love it when a plan comes together’ . Makes me want to get a shoe locker and do the same!
Ha, I use those as spice racks in my cabinet, to help me see everything easier. Great idea to use them for shoe storage! That’s one of my favorite things about IKEA, their products can be used in more ways than one.
I was expecting some heroic hack of these shelves, but look they just fit, what a great solution. Are you sad you didn’t’ have to chop them down or retrofit them?
Those feet grow so fast. And BIG!
Haha, actually it was kind of magical when they fit like that. I never expect things to that smoothly 🙂
My little IKEA shelves are in the kitchen too 🙂 But your shoe project set my brain whirring…
this is so great! we are looking for lockers in our area too, they make such great storage
now you can go buy more shoes 😉
seriously, these shelves are cool I had not noticed them on the (french) catalog. big mistake !

I could subscribe most of the comments: love, brilliant, great, never seen such a solution!
I hope, I find a perfect one for my apartment as well soon! 😉
But I need to know, why so many sets of keys?
With a fairly new to me house I don’t want to toss any keys that I’m not 100% sure don’t go anywhere in the house. The rest are bike lock + chain keys, garage keys, pad lock keys, radiator keys, luggage keys, attic key + extra sets of house keys etc.
Suck… Tänk om vi hade det sådär! 🙂 Gilla, gilla.
