How do you find the hanger wings on them? Are they minimal or still noticeable? I have really heavy knits that could use hanging because they just cause my sweater stacks to end up a mess.
Nothing too fancy, but it's starting to come along. Hard to take pictures of because it's narrow - out of the picture to the right side, there's an identical wall of shelves behind the door (except there's a lot less clothes on the shelves).
In an effort to organize my ties, I just (literally, I'm doing it right now, I'm taking a break to post) began converting these shelves to tie shelves. Very easy DIY, just cut a board of painted pine to the correct size, space them about 2.5-3in apart to fit the ties, and attach them to the shelf walls. Got 2 rows done so far, 2 more to go.
Cool shoehorn my girlfriend got me, with that liquid gold (Saphir) in the back
More Shoes - missing their Allen Edmonds friend that I just sold on the B&S here :(
Awesome Daines and Hathaway tray my awesome girlfriend bought me (now that I think about it, she also bought me the pen holder....I should probably marry her already)
Next project is installing a belt hook somewhere. I also built a cedar shoe rack for my cleats and tennis shoes to air out on.

I finally got around to doing my closet space "Home Improvement" project. I forgot to take any "before" photos before I took the two huge sliding doors off. But I'm so sick of them.
This is a work in progress, few things left:
- Ordering a set of ceiling mounted hospital rails and intend to hang a curtain from them. The two sliding doors are not being put back.
- Have to take it all apart at some point in the future in order to repair the walls and repaint.
- While apart, I intend to stain it.
My home is very small (and cheap) so I didn't want to put any real money into this. Total cost was ~$125 dollars so far and about 4 hours of my time to this point. You could probably do it for about $60 if you use construction grade wood and metal rods. I seriously considered some of the +$100 store bought packages but I didn't want particle board and I didn't need shelves. But I did need "something" in between in order to make two rows of rods.
Here is my part list (all from a popular home improvement store)
- 3x rod sockets (brushed nickle)
- 96" oak rod (cut in two pieces for the right side)
- 72" oak rod (for the left side)
- 1x12x8 pine (finish quality) for top shelf.
- 1x12x6 pine (finish quality) for vertical separator.
- 2x2x6 pine (finish quality) to serve as anchor point between vertical piece and backer.
- 1x4x6 pine (cheap!) to server as backer (attached to stud)
One of my primary concerns was not having my shirts cramped. This gave me a lot more room, and it'll look nicer when complete. I moved some of the extra items no longer there into storage. I know it's not "nice" but it's a solid improvement and I'm very happy with it.
