List of necessary materials and tools:
- 2 pcs of 120*80 cm pallets;
- Saw or jig saw;
- Hammer and nails;

- Wood paint, paintbrush;
- Measuring tape and safety tools.
First step:saw a 33 cm – bin part or a size what kind of entry pallet shoe storage you want.
Next step: the rest of the pallet you can finish the bench and also create the legs.
Take apart the rest of the pallet. We used a sabre saw but if you don’t have any – use an iron saw.
After that need a 80 cm – 31,5 inch slat and clinch 3 cubes on it.
Join it to the first separated part of the pallet. Also fix the slats on the other side. Need 2 from this the top and the bottom of the rack.
The legs:need 2 pcs of 33cm – bin slats and 2 pcs of cubes for the legs. From another pallet project we have some remaining cylinders – here we used them.
Repeat the full process once more by the second pallet.
Next step:keep sanding until the surface is free from all rough things. We used a sanding tool with 80 grit paper. By the hard approachable surface use a piece of slat and wind around the grit paper. Or use a rotary sanding tool. Brush the dust off.
Almost the last step is paintwork. We used mahagony color wood paint.
Hole where the parts of the entry shoe storage rack will join each other.
Mark the place of the next holes with a help of nail.
Use carriage bolts in order to the bench will be stable and join the parts.
Attach legs in the same manner.
Add mattress and you pallet shoe rack will be ready!
