When it comes to furniture functionality and chic diy transformations the Hemnes Shoe Cabinet is probably one of my favorite Ikea hack pieces. The slim size of this piece make it ideal for narrow closets or hallways and the piece can be used for much more than shoe storage.
You can create a compact mud room next to the front door and use the top drawer to hold keys, chargers, batteries and other daily essentials.
Ikea sells several styles of shoe cabinets including this 4 drawer version.
There are a thousand and one ways you can customize the shoe cabinets to give it a unique style.

O’verlays has created a collection of designer overlays to fit the Hemnes cabinets which is another easy way to get a designer look in a flash.
I love the look of two shoe cabinets placed side by side to function as a console cabinet.
Most of the shoe cabinets are available in black-brown and white or a wood grain finish.
The shoe cabinet can also work to hold cold weather accessories, files, cords or lightweight books.
The 3-drawer Brissa shoe cabinet is a great buy at $39.99 and looks great customized with a wood frame and brass cup pulls.
