Also don’t want to pass on the nightmare that is this shoe rack. Any ideas on how to repurpose this thing. ALSO: it is expandable Reply Plate it with gold, encrust with jewels. Sell on etsy for a fotune Reply Maybe a clothes drying rack? Like find a way to hang it above your dryer using brackets. I’d probably re-drill the rods to the corners and make a firewood rack, because I need one of those. Reply Use is only limited by your needs and creativity. Sure you could hang stuff from it as is, but clean it thoroughly first. You could stand it on end and use it to hole a kitchen garbage bag. Shelves could be added and fastened to the bars in various ways(screws,clamps,zip-ties). The bars and ends could be re-purposed in other ways. Sometimes I disassemble things and save the pieces for projects. It appears the bars have flattened ends. One end can be bent and used in the wall, while the other can stick up at a 45 degree angle and attach to a shelf. I’d store it if you have room or part it out now and save the pieces. Reply DVD or video game storage? Reply Add a board across the top rails and use it as a bench at the door for people to put shoes on. They are called entry way benches and run from $60-$250 and up. Reply Remove the top front and back rails and use it for wood storage by the fireplace. Maybe make a shelf for kindling below.
