Build My Closet Around….This.

So I am easing my way back into reality today and looking at the multitude of items that still need resolution.  One of them is this. Take a look at the project that is most definitely an obsession.  Its been called a lot of different things including the Lazy Shoe-Zan among others.  In a nutshell its a brilliant idea for holding shoes.  It is a self-contained unit with a lazy susan like device that has cubbies for individual pair of shoes.

I am not the girl that keeps all of the shoe boxes my shoes come in, mostly because of space.  Many times I don’t even get a box when I nab a fantastic deal at Nordstrom Rack. I have tried a number of solutions which all seem to work for a few weeks.  All it takes is a frantic Sunday morning when I need to find a specific pair of shoes and only one is cooperating so I tear apart the entire closet and its destined to remain as such for the next month.

So literally when I ran across this picture it became my mission to locate and purchase said item. Easier said than done.  It’s not manufactured for sale by a company and though there are a few individuals out there with like items, securing this bad boy has become more than a notion.

I have located a step by step tutorial done by a handy-dandy Home depot employee which has been helpful. There is also a carpenter in Utah that is selling the plans for the item, but wont ship it outside of the state.  So I have taken all the information I have been able to compile and headed over Angie’s List to locate a good woodworker.  Great idea.  The first quote I received back was in the arena of $1200. BOOOOOOO!!!!

I have thought about perhaps having it done in a resin like material or MDF that might be less expensive, but have not yet been able to find a fabricator as of yet.  So the journey continues an I hope someone reading this can offer a suggestion. I am determined to get this into my closet!! I am actually even willing to find someone who can cut all the pieces so that the hubs and I can put it together on site.

At this point all I have is a cute little 32″ x 32″ box on the master designs awaiting its arrival 😦

Dream Home.
