Thumbs up Pictures of my new closet shelving!

Hello Everyone!

I just made a change to the cedar closet in my '92 Excella - I was sick of piling everything up so I thought this out and here is what I came up with - used 4' sections of the shelving which Home Depot cut in half for me (I put this in upside down to take advantage of the edge to keep stuff from bounciing off) - on the corner that 'hangs in space' I used chain from one to another and ultimately hanging from the clothes hanger rod at the top. The brackets on the right and back are part of the shelving system that is sold at HD. It is rock-solid! I used small bungies acrosss the end to keep stuff from falling off into the part that still takes hanging clothes. It works! PLUS, I did it all myself! Cost about $35-$40.

Nice! I love the wY you put the shelves upside down to keep things from sliding. We have an 89 excella 29 and I was just remarking about wanting to add sheles this weekend....

By the way, our closet has an additional cabinet door under it for plumbing access, it is much easier than raising to closet floor.

Very Nice! I love shelves, I could do that in my bathroom of my 65 tradewind. I was wondering how I was going to stack towels and linen in that closet.
Thanks for the idea and pictures!

Love it! And those shelves won't gather any dust either!

Is that a cedar-lined closet, or did you add that wood at the back?

Another project in the works!

Thank you everyone! I loved doing that project - so simple and so useful!
The closet was already cedar-lined (Excella). I left 1/2 the closet to still hang coats/clothes in. What a space-saver for me!

Now I've started another project - turn the couch, box in the batteries and other solar and inverter stuff to make a bench under the front windows - move the folding writing desk table toward the front - build another bench with back for across the table (just to the right, inside the door) - I'm making a little mini-dinette in my 29'er.....the table will still fold down for extra floor space.....I'll be posting pictures as that comes along.
