Here's a quick and minor update that has me dancing in my pants:
All the closets in the house are your standard bar and one shelf. It works, but either leaves a bunch of un-used space at the top OR a circus-car-packed-with-clowns effect when cram in as much as you can...
So, we built a second shelf. More organized & more storage! This is really quite simple: curt & screw to wall the 1x3 frame, and then cut shelf to size & voila! Add some paint, if you like things pretty... but ONLY if you like.
1x3 frame installed & painted
was also painting the shelf... both dry & both go up!
immediately jam with junk... TA DA!
Word to the wise: remove closet doors before embarking on this journey.
