Closet Makeover

I hated the way my bi pass closet doors wasted so much precious space, as well as only having a single rod for hanging. I can't even post my before photo because of the embarrassing mess billowing out. On the both sides there are two bars based on the height of our own clothing and space needs. On the left side I made the bottom bar about 18 inches shorter than the top so that dresses can hang in that space. I also attached spare 1x12's to the rod brackets and am using them for shoes.

Another great thing about this closet system is my dirty laundry sorter! Before we just had random baskets in another part of the room for this job. Now we have a nice tidy spot and it really helps be keep up on our laundry.

Closet makeovers on our to-do list as well, and I was wanting to incorporate the laundry dresser in them as well. Glad to see this done !
