DIY Closet System

10,552 Views
Ikea Rast dressers used as the base for built-in dressers in a closet.
Built-in adjustable shelves add extra shelving and flexibility.
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.

    Great job. Using a dresser fastened to the wall and building the closet organizer around it is a great way to get a cheap closet organizer and improve bedroom storage

      @Pamela two of my children share this closet and been very fortunate to have hand-me downs from friends and family. We are definitely loving the organization the shelves provide :)
