Wolf Pup Shoe Storage

After a few seasons, it was time to tackle this little project. A place for shoes has always been an issue. Iíve made a few mods to dinette storage, and other areas, but none as convenient as this location for shoes.

Excellent idea. I think that might work in my unit as well. That looks about 4-5" of depth at the top?

I didnít want to screw into the side of the cabinet, so I sized it to fit tight against that wall and door trim for extra support and used foam tape.

Iíd say itís 5Ē, but I will provide some measurements. I know itís 22.5Ē long, used some scrap wood from my sons old slat bed frame lol.

I would be concerned about screwing into the cabinet as well. My cabinet side is that brittle thin pressed wood that a sneeze could put a hole in.

Exactly, and there is no support behind it except at the edges, and the side of my fridge.

Bracing against the trim is a good idea. Heavier shoes might cause issues on the other taped side. Keep us informed as to if you are happy with how it works long-term.
Plenty of room for two pair. But will weight be an issue?

I struggled and worried about mounting something in my RV. I finally decided if I really want it there and it isnít gawd awful... chances are it will be good with the new owners if there ever is one.

Trust me. A few personal shelves and accessories added to a used RV that is kept in good shape...will not go against the price. Donít believe me? Go look at some used RVs. The smell of most will turn you away.

I was in the trailer for a minute the other day with my 6 YO GS and he said ďPawpaw why does it smell good in here?Ē I said cause we try to take care of it. What I got from it....was that my house stinks. 🤨

Two, possibly three pairs of shoes will fit. I'm also concerned it may pull away on the right side that is not supported by door frame. I will wait an see how it goes, if needed I can add a small 1" brace to help support, or if I really enjoy this build, I will just make it more permanent with some screws.

I've also added a thin piece of wood to protect the cabinet (Photo Below), I can only image what that cabinet will look like after a season of sliding shoes in an out (Worse then a few screw holes I was trying to avoid for sure).

Other Shoe Rack Design

This project was my wife's idea. She wanted shoe storage as well, and we don't use much of the storage below the first bench. This is an off-the-shelf shoe rack ($15) from target that i just built into the storage area. The flexible mold trim was $10, but worth it.

Very nice work, the trim adds a nice finished look. I was thinking about cutting into my under bed storage and doing something similar. That shelf looks perfect!

Wolf Pup Shoe Storage

Do you suppose "heavy duty" Velcro would keep it in place to avoid having to drill into cabinetry or wall panels? Just a thought.

That may be a better idea. That way the rack could be removed easily for whatever reason. Space is tight in that area for me.

Velcro was a thought, just not sure if it will hold, or be one of those items that keeps falling off the wall. Im going to try it.

You could try a few of those Command Strips. 3 or 4 should hold it.

I only had a little time this morning (sorry no photos), and pulled off the foam tape. Replaced with a strip of velcro on each side (used a staple gun to help hold the velcro onto the shoe rack side). I find cleaning with alcohol before mounting, and giving the glue on any of these mounting techniques a chance to cure, goes a long way. Being able to remove is a nice "feature".

The velcro is holding surprisingly well. Looks like a much better solution than foam tape.

What did you use to stain the wood? It looks like it matches the cabinet color really well....

It's just some stain I had in the garage. I will get the color for you. If I put another coat, it may be a better match. Currently the stain is a bit on the lighter side compared to the factory color. Ive used it on a few other additions to the Wolf Pup and multiple coats gets the color closer.

I think painting it Black might give things like this some nice contrast. Like the previous post with the store bought shoe rack.
