But, I did work with it - as a gift for my daughter. They have a really strange closet - sort of like a low attic area. It had a single rod all the way across an expanse of about 12 feet. Horrible. But, there really wasn't much you could do to improve the situation. But, we tried!
First I built a center cabinet with shelves. This was to allow her to stack her jeans and sweatshirts. I included a narrow top shelf that would hold her numerous pairs of flip-flops and sandals. And, then I added rods on each side, one side for Cara and one for Jon - guess which side is larger :-)
Then I added a narrow upper shelf on each side. Although small, this was space they didn't have before.
I must say, too, that I had a good helper!
|Center piece in - it was a struggle. No straight walls at all! And I can't measure worth beans...|
|Center cabinet - no shelves yet! And, two rods. |
At this point, I probably could have stopped - she was thrilled that she could see her shoes on the floor!
|With shelves and lots of folded clothes.|
|Hanging clothes and space for shoes and scarves and hats and bags (and way too many things hanging on that rod!)|
We need to change that rod out to a metal rod.
