Sliding Storage

Martha Stewart Living, January 2009

Normally used in kitchens, a pull-out pantry becomes a shoe closet when the shelves are installed at an angle; professional assistance is recommended for this project. Nonskid shelf liners prevent pairs from sliding when the unit moves.

    I agree, this is the perfect thing to organise (and display) my shoes! Could we please have better instuctions on how to build this, as we don't have ready to go pantry supply stores in South Africa, and making things yourself is always more fun!

    yes yes yes!!! oh ... i think i hurt myself this is fantastic! kind of like a secret hiding place for stuff! my mom is Imelda Marcos ( i might show her this) i have only about 1/50th of the shoes she has but.... i have no closet space and this could be modified for things i do collect :) directions please please please!

    PLEASE could we get some instructions?? I don't have that many shoes (okay, I DO have a thing for boots), but maybe the lower shelves could be adapted to hold jeans, etc. I have a VERY small master bdrm closet (only 4 ft. wide) for 2 of us, so any way I can get more space definately helps!!

    Now I COULD do drugs or drink myself silly, BUT I chose to collect shoes instead. This is JUST what I need! Could we get better instructions please?

    I'm sorry, but with the world as it is I can't help but comment:
    Why does anyone who is not a Vanna White or someone with a fashion
    career need so many shoes? My life of frugality-now called green, I guess,-is some how for nothing but making up for someone's exorbitant fetish.

    Ikea has a very similar cabinet.

    would love a few more views

    You can store even more shoes using the same pantry concept, but instead of angled shelves, you can use shoe cubbies. You're shoes won't be as nicely displayed, but you'll be able to store more shoes and small handbags using the cubby system.

    Looks good..so where would I have this installed??

  • mainemoosie 7 May, 2010

    probably the shelves are not deep enough when flat--thus, the angle

  • whir0016 6 Apr, 2009

    the angled shelf helps the shoes be more visible.

    cause then it wouldn't be Martha Stewart!!!!!

  • mccandlesstrekkies1 5 Apr, 2009

    Why not just leave the shelves flat?
