Well we were remodeling about the time our kids were all moving out. With one bathroom we were going to add another. Once the kids left I asked my wife, “bathroom or walk-in closet?” She chose the closet. Anyway, maple laminate flooring and I made my own organizers from 3/4 ply and red oak for the cabinet doors and drawer fronts. Minwax red mahogany stain with poly clear. I use water based poly inside from now on as the off gassing was pretty bad

Cheaper than the bathroom. Think I would have liked the bathroom with a hot tub more but the wife is blessed to have the closet so that is fine too.

Dale, that is a nice job that you did on the closet. You could have gone with melamine shleving for the bulit-ins but this looks a lot nicer.

If your wife is anything like mine there isn’t room for any of your clothes in there. It takes the walk-in in the master bedroom suite and three additional closets to handle my wife’s stuff (clothes, shoes, purses). My clothes were relegated to a single closet in the downstairs bedroom.

Nice job.

Thanks for the compliments. This was my first project as a novice woodworker so your kind words ae much appreciated. I learned many things while doing this. I lucked out on closet space as I had another closet, actually quite large for myself too. Not as nice as this but good enough for my clothes and hunting gear :)
