Adding drawers to open closet?

Anyone added drawers to an open closet? There's a large open closet with a rod in my 22' AS, but we'd rather have drawers inside, rather than a rod for hanging clothes. Right now, I've got those cheap plastic drawers in there, but they don't function as well as we'd like, especially with even the slightest bit of weight on top of them. Anyone added drawers in a closet like this? Did you build some drawers, have some built, or buy an after market product?

I bought wire free standing shelves form Ikea and they fit very well in one the closet, I had to remove the door to put it in. I used two modules work well for us. Use stick on pads for each corner so that they do not scratch the closet sides.

We put plastic module drawers from the container store in our closet of our Bambi. We stacked three sections that fit perfectly ( depth and width ) an is very sturdy. We store canned goods, plastic wrap, zip looks and various other kitchen items in them. They work great for us and there's still room to hang shirts etc.

Here's the set up. The drawers go all the way back and the 3 separate sections stack, leaving room to hang shirts etcClick image for larger version

Check out this thread.
BAB came up with the idea and I copied it. We love it.

Dave, thanks for the link and info. What I like about our set up is that it was about $60 total and it's easily modified or removed altogether if need be. In my 19' Bambi we use the hanging space above for shirts etc. But, Bab's setup is really nice!

We used Elfa shelves from the Container Store. We put 2 smaller shelves in the top 2 slots. They just didn't make the picture.

We also put the Elfa 10" wide drawers in our new 19' Bambie. Since its new, my wife did not want any screws or other permanent fastenings. So I secured the unit with 1" Velcro strips front and back. It is really secure. Now we just need to get out and use it.

In the 16' bambi the back part of the closet has a hinged access door for the water heater. Does the 19 have the same? Anything I do on the 16 has to be easily removable to access that, i.e. maybe only twice a year but I don't want to have something that is very hard to remove or will bang things up on the way in or out.
