Closet Makeover

In our apartment our "dressing room" also happens to be our dining room. As the only room in our space that has his and hers closets, plenty of floor space for cast-offs and Ikea bags of clean laundry, we struggle to keep it in a "manageable" state. After my most recent purge I was able to really fit everything in, but some things remained unaccessible and therefore unworn. Both of our closets are so narrow hangers only fit in the area with the door jam--so the pockets on either side of the door are poorly utilized. My goal is to maxize my closet space by adding built in shelves, hooks and creative storage to the door-- along with a splash of color for fun!

    What about long neckaces?

      I would just adjust the spacing to accommodate the length. It might even be prudent to add a rod to place the (bottom) ends of the necklaces behind in order to keep them more stable when opening and closing the door.

    What can I do with mirrored closet doors? I had Closet World do a nice job years ago to my closet, but I still do not have enough room. I would like to use the inside of my glass doors if possible, does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks

    Cool if you have a solid door. If not I guess you could use construction glue to put up some 1x's and attach the screws to that and then lay the pipes in?

    I have MANY statement necklaces and no place for them. Thank you, this solves my problem.

    Love the way you installed copper tubing and hooks to hold scarves, belts and jewelry if you so desired. The hanging of baskets is a great way of keeping gloves, and hats in one place. Thanks for sharing your ideas.
