A month ago my boyfriend and I decided to get rid of our cheapie Ikea shoe rack after we found a better solution at the side of the road in an old wine crate. The entrance was lacking decor and our new solution filled up some space while being functional. We were both so happy it worked since it was a pain to carry home and up our three flights of stairs. Anyway, the wooden shoe rack has a new home outdoors holding planters. It doesn’t take up too much room and is sturdy enough to hold a few pots. Easiest Ikea hack ever? I think so.
