After being "so done" with the original closet that came with the home, I decided to rip out all the wire shelving and make a custom closet out of 1x4s and 2x4s. I pre-stained all the boards and cut to custom lengths. I kept the integrity height for the shelves of 42" and 84". Instead of using galvanized pipe, I used Halefe Premium Oval closet rods. In the end, I have a very stout closet and a much better use of space.
For the small shelf beside the window, I used 1x4s cut to custom length. Under the hanging shelves, there will be a shoe rack.
