With more and more Filipinos trying their hand at redecorating their homes, do-it-yourself home furniture pieces are getting increasingly popular. As such, a Facebook post about a DIY shoe rack has been going viral for a while now.
“Dili na nako sayangan ang carton sa gatas ni Ethan,” Christian Lee Etan Gatoc said in his Facebook post. [I’m no longer wasting Ethan’s milk cartons.]
Father to a growing baby boy, Christian has collected enough milk cartons to create a shoe rack with multiple layers. In his post, he shows the step-by-step process of his project.
