Reconfiguring the Closet

One of the things I've wanted to do for a long time to the house is to reconfigure my closet. Our house is a 70's ranch style, and the closets are pretty small. I had two bars, one on each side, and a shelf. There was A LOT of extra space in the top of the closet and I just had stuff stacked on top of stuff! Anyway, with Kaelie's referral drawing near, I took the plunge and decided to go for it.

First, I took everything out of the closet! Then, I demolished the bars and shelves and started off with a blank slate. Now I have two bars on the left (one for David's clothes, the other for my shirts and sweaters), an armoire in the middle - giving me two more dresser drawers) and one bar on the right for dresses.

I'll also have two shelves on the right. I'll add pretty baskets and label for all of the "stuff" I decide to save. I've got to go through David's clothes and decide what to Ebay/Goodwill. I will a patch up a few holes where I demolished the old shelving and paint.

Hope you enjoy the pictures of my handyman apprentice Jeremy testing the strength of the bars and helping screw the bars in place. He is was a terrific helper!
