UNDER THE STAIRS CLOSET MAKEOVER PART ONE

I'm finally ready to tackle our closet, aka the dumping ground for all things we want to hide!  First things first, we did a total clean out of the closet.  Surprisingly it can actually fit a lot of storage items as evidenced below:


Eeks!  Look at all the things we have been just throwing in there haphazardly.   After cleaning it out, we decided to keep seasonal items like holiday decorations as well as our empty luggage in the tapered section of the closet.  


For the entrance to the closet we are installing our long sought after coat rod.   Hopefully the coats will help hide all the items we are storing in the back!  Because we are hanging heavy winter coats on the rod and we could not find any wall studs where we wanted to install the rod, we also installed a hook (a regular bicycle hook) in the middle to help support the rod.  





The rod itself is leftover wood that we had from installing other closet rods in our bedroom closets.  We just used the regular saw station at Home Depot to hand saw the rod to the correct length.  We did purchase the pole sockets ($6) and the bicycle hook ($1) to help support the rod in place.  Next step is to install some coat hangers and organizers on the other side of the entrance to the closet.  I can't wait to get organized!

  3. Isn't it amazing how much stuff we have? Love the idea of installing the rod for hanging coats, and I bet it'll work great for hiding what's behind them :)
