I was commissioned…errrr, asked…to removed the terrible looking and not thought through wire closet system in our master bedroom closet. Track lighting was also on the list.

This is one of those projects I really whish I had a ‘before’ picture for…the transformation is just ridiculous. I really could not have hoped for a better result and was paid the ultimate compliment when I was told it “looks professional”.

Thanks to those who took the time in the forums to help me figure out the best way to ‘hang’ several of the parts.

Wood is all Walnut without any finish (per request).

Looks like you hired someone to do it… nice work!

And you’re probably not telling the whole story, I’m guessing. You probably had to also fill umpteen screw holes, sand them smooth, then repaint the wall.

This is one of the reasons I love home renovation: You get to see the night and day, and decide what that day is going to look like.

I hope you and your wife both get a smile on your face every time you have to get something out of the closet.

Just out of curiousity, how deep are those shelves, about 12-inches?

yes, there were 42 anchor holes (seriously) that needed to be filled and smoothed and then the closet was painted.

The 4 shelves on the bottom are 16” deep, along with the long shelf (well, technically a shelf) below the shirts. The full width shelf on the top and the short shelf just below that on the right are 12” deep. The 45 degree angle cut on the main vertical piece taking it from 16” to 12” was my wife’s idea and I really like how it turned out.

That’s nice, but I better not let my wife see that.
