Shoe Rack – Walk Out Wardrobe

Staying in a condo with just my hubby has it benefits as we have rooms we do not use and I can claim as my own! So I changing one of the rooms into a wardrobe.
My “Walk-Out Wardrobe” where I can spruce up when walking out of the house, instead of a “Walk-In Wardrobe”.

Fashion Wardrobe - DIY Shoe Rack

I was given some glass pieces by an acquaintance who had just closed down her fashion boutique, and thought I could use it for my “Walk-Out” Wardrobe”. So I went out and bought 40 bricks and 50 cents a piece.

To create the support for my shoe racks with the bricks I decided to wrap the bricks up, as to make sure it wouldn’t damage the floor. On hindsight, I think I would have preferred more colour instead of plain brown, maybe next time when I have more time.

You will need:
1. Some paper, tape and bricks, I wrapped the bricks for the support of my shoe racks.
2. Pieces of glass to use as the surfaces of the racks, you can get at those shops which sells racks and hangers for clothing shops.
3. Decorative items I have bought from Kaison, Paradigm Mall.

Kaison is my favourite shop for decorative items, things there are so nice & cheap! I got those vases at only RM16 each & flowers at RM5 each.
I was so tempted to buy much more! But my pocket was running dry.

I will need to buy more shoes for my shoe rack too!
Another trip to Taiwan, hubby? hehe…

Fashion Wardrobe - DIY Shoe Rack

I used a temporary clothes rack to hold my shawls, jackets & bags.
Doesn’t seem to fit the deco, so I will need to go to Ikea to get a better clothes rack, I think I saw one I liked.
I am also thinking of getting a nice full length mirror where I can do my make up before walking out the door.

Here is my cutie little baby, Coffee, who has kept me company throughout my time spent wrapping those bricks… it took much longer than I expected.

And Voila! The final product.
My Walk-Out Closet all decorated and done up.
Thanks to Pinterest, Ikea & Kaison!

    Definitely love the idea! But I prefer showing the bricks texture rather than wrap it to add more character to the room.
