Shoe Molding Rack 2.0

Always in search of ways to make a project easier to install and more affordable, I revised my original molding shoe rack. Cut 24-inch long pieces of polyurethane decorative molding and paint them with Benjamin Moore Poolside Blue paint. Once dried use a gold paint pen to highlight the curves of the relief pattern.

Each 24-inch molding rack holds up to three light pairs of heels.
