Two Ikea Rast dressers were secured into studs on each side of the wall. To add shelving above the dressers, a Kreg Jig was used to secure the vertical walls of the shelves to the dresser top. Before adding the shelves, a 3/4" cleat was secured to the wall and sides of the shelf. Each shelf is secured to the cleat using a nail gun.
To create adjustable shelving a peg board was used to drill the holes on the insides of each plywood vertical shelf.

    This is a good approach for adult closets as well. It looks like you have a big closet to begin with, so you can really fit all the components in with no difficulty.

      @Liliana Wells yes we definitely love all the components of this closet and can't wait to put something like this in our master closet.

    Yes, my daughters shared a closet also...as well as the one time ownership of an older cousin-- because my daughters were one year apart they often shared clothes. Thank goodness for hand me downs. Still a great use of space. We are planning 2 closet

    Nice job, I don't see the second dresser?

    • Kristin Kennedy

      It was hard to get a full shot, but the last picture shows a lite bit of the secon dresser. They were installed on top of each other and screwed into the studs. I hope this helps.
