Do you need better storage inside the small bedroom closets in your midcentury modern or midcentury modest house? I sure do! So when I peeked inside this storage area built into the eaves of the upstairs bedroom at Duane and Mary’s 1948 Cape Cod house…
… I was delighted to see this shoe rack tucked into the far edge of a small closet.
This looks like an easy DIY using inexpensive wood. I wonder: Did the plans come from an old Popular Mechanix magazine — or one of those other magazines from back in the day with ideas for handy home woodworking projects? I bet it did!
I’m gonna do this in my own closet (as soon as I finish my other big project)!
