Once dry, I turned the carousel upside down to add the casters. Put a piece of cloth under the top to avoid scratching your newly painted finish. Here is the completed shoe storage carousel before I added the padded top.
Desiree and Patricia shared the shoe carousel that they made using the plans above. Not just for shoes, this shoe carousel now stores books and small toys and has a padded seat that matches the decor of a little girl's bedroom.
I decided to make this shoe storage carousel a mobile unit - on casters - with a padded top - as shown at the top of this page. Now I can use this as a seat as well as for storing my favourite shoes. This carousel is a bit too large to fit into the wardrobe, but you can easily cut the circles to fit in your closet. But if you want to leave off the padded top - you can. You can also make this a larger tower if you have shoes galore!
We have added a for those who prefer a more 'hands-on' approach, but here is the step-by-step project on how to make your own shoe carousel or turntable.
