Hello everyone.

I recently had a large bathroom divided which resulted in gaining a large walk in closet. We had California Closets come over and give an estimate for creating hanging and storage space. They designed a nifty closet, and then the hammer fell. They wanted $6000.00 for a melamine closet. I thought was absolutely ridiculous, so my wife and I have been designing and making our own.

step one was to refurbish a shaker chimney cabinet my wife had built 10 or 15 years ago. She never quite got around to finishing it and I have been it using to store power tools. It was not tall enough to fit two closet bars on the right, so I built a small pedestal for it. The doors were exceptionally warped so we decided to just leave them off.

I then built the unit on the left and connected everything with the bars.
