The Closet in the Master Bedroom is Done!

Yep. It's done. I'll bet you were thinking it would never get done but it is done. The closet is 4 foot x 12 foot. On the right end are shelves that are are 2ft deep. Below the shelves is a place for tucking suitcases. As you can see, I have also used store bought shoe shelves in a unique way. I added wheels and a handle and now they tuck neatly under the lowest shelf. Need shoes? Just pull out the shoe caddy. Nice. The next shelf up will be a great place to stash a laundry basket. The remaining shelves will be fitted with tubs for storage of blankets, winter clothes, etc.

On the far right end of the closet I have built in a hanging unit for dresses. and such. Turns out I don't have all that many dresses. But I do still have my preaching robes. Don't know if I can ever bring myself to let those go. Phil has his academic robes. so that sort of fills up that end.
In between I built two sets of upper and lower hanging units--one for me and one for Phil. You can see from the above photo that mine is already full. Phil doesn't have quite as many clothes as I do but he managed to use up a good bit of space on his end. I added a few hooks for robes and clothing we weren't quite ready to put away.

It's wonderful to finally have it done. I was very thankful to be able to take my clothes out of the u-Haul hanging clothes boxes. They were actually very hard on the fabrics. It is also nice to have my clothes all in one place and in the bedroom. Happy, happy!

What shall we do next?
