Craft Closet Makeover


Our home had a thin, long, rather unused closet. Since I was missing having a space to do projects, I decided to convert the closet into my craft space. I took down the shelf and pole, measured the width, and tackled the project for less than $50. All I needed was one sheet of plywood, some 2x2 furring strips and 1x2 trim pieces. I used the 1x2's as cleats to screw into the studs, then set my plywood on top and screwed into the cleats. The 2x2's became support legs. I left the center section open so I'd have room to sew and use the desk. The desk is 28" tall, the shelves are 15" high and 11" long, while the whole thing is 20" deep. It's the perfect solution for this closet! More details on my blog, here http://www.killerbdesigns.com/craft-closet-makeover/
