Our master closet has needed a little work from day 1. Overall, it was in good condition. Larger than that in our previous house. Plenty of hanging space, but only one skinny shelving unit. Next to the shelving, behind the door, was a leftover dead space with only a tie rack. We’ve discussed adding shelving here and finally, Trent got us started 2 weekends ago.
He took measurements and cleared the space. Then we headed to Lowe’s to purchase 1×12 utility shelving boards.
Trent constructed the shelving in our garage. Our son and I grabbed rollers and painted it glossy white to match the existing shelving. Our DIY house projects are truly family affairs.
Finally, Trent put it in place in our master closet while I completed the paint – painting the wall behind in white and touching up the shelving.
I took photos while I was still waiting on the paint to dry completely. All but 2 shelves currently have clothing or toiletries on it. We’re planning to store some linens for our room as well since, strangely enough, this house does not have a linen closet. Oh and we still need to rehang the door. It was easier to install with the door off as well as load the shelves while we decided what we wanted where.
Overall, I’m thrilled. It’s simple, but Trent did a great job of matching the existing shelving. It’s very functional. So nice to have this extra storage space! And to check one more “to do” off that long list.
