The only reason I didn’t cover them was because it was in a closet though-and with the face frame over the drawer part, it was even less noticeable that it was a plywood edge on the shelves. The main reason we choose to add a footer was to elevate the closet above the baseboard. Whether it’s one you’ve made (there are so many tutorials for doing this on the internet) or simply one you’ve bought, clothes racks are a great asset to a room without a closet. I can see that shoe rack being used in heated game of hide and seek” in the future!
Luckily, we know how you can continue to have that addiction without breaking the bank or the closet rod with too many clothes – Give Le Tote a try! I am SO doing this to my office closet and guest bedroom… the doorways are atrociously small but I don’t feel like opening the doors up since the carpet and everything are all replaced already! Sometimes an informal wardrobe calls for an entirely different approach to closet organization. From a full Dream Closet, to a simple melamine solution, or custom cabinets in your dressing room or bedroom, there is a custom closet organizer that is right for you.
We were slightly worried that adding shelves on the sides would make the closet seem smaller, but after having cut the original shelf down to 1′ depth instead of 2′, it actually opens things up a LOT. Essentially, closet organization is a very personal process—you don’t want just anybody digging through your personal belongings, so do a lot of inquiries before hiring. Just fasten the Easy Track rail system to the wall, hang the panels from the rail, and attach the hanging rods.
Four of these are double hanging closet and two shelves – as they all have two hanging bars; two of them are just a closet with one bar but three shelves – we don’t have much of longer stuff, so these are narrower with more shelves. If you want to use a thinner fabric to make an organizer, make the back panel by sandwiching a layer of stiff interfacing between two layers of fabric. We will get to the nitty gritty of cost in a minute, but if cost is a concern, then consider hiring a professional organizer to plan out the design and then leave you to implement it, saving you a lot of money, but adding to the time you will have to personally commit to the project.
Closet helps you categorize your outfits and keeps you up-to-date on what you’ve already worn. Our closet organization kits come with everything you need in one box, and they’re easy to install yourself. For track-mounted closet shelves, begin by plotting where you want the top hang track to go, keeping in mind your shelving system.

This is to accommodate for the baseboard installed in the closet so that the organizer can sit flush against the back wall. I realized that I am not utilizing most clothes in my closet and don’t have enough time to think a new outfit in the morning.
Then I stained it with Rusteolum Kona, sealed it with three coats of poly, sanding with 400 grit between coats 1 and 2. I also did the closet rods as well, I love the look of the dark wood!

If you look at my closet closely, you can see a piece of 1X5 pine that is supporting the shelving all the way around.
