Cable Strap Storage Solution
It's more that just a cable strap, it's a great shape to hook into! All that's left is to identify the "hidden potential" space your can use this little helper!
I was sure to pre plan the size of the cable strap I would need for the hangers I wanted to use for my identified "hidden potential" storage space.
Here's my 'hidden potential' space!
...ooooh the find! The way my closet rod was mounted I have up to 6" inches of room behind my hanging clothes.
I covered the cable straps I used with duck tape...thought I had white duck tape laying around but this polka dot worked! I just like the idea of the clamps having a plastic like coating.
Just screw right through the "duck taped-up" holes. You should be mounting into a secure surface. In this case my upper shelf is mounted on wooden cleats which provided a good sturdy mounting board. If the space you're looking at does not have this feature in place, you can first mount a horizontal length of 1x2 at the correct height into your wall studs. Once your 'mounting board' is in place, you're ready to mount your cable straps onto that.
A great space for my scarf storage...when I move my clothes aside, they're all right in front of me. Formerly I had to try to swing the scarf hanger out to see what I had.
and purse hangers, I prefer the way they lay flat against the wall now. These purse hangers were purchased at Home Sense-a housewares store, from the organization department.

    I'd like to know where to get the bracket that holds the rod up? It looks very sturdy

    If you still have room, you could also hang your jeans back there as well. Could I ask where you found those hangers that your jeans are on??

    My closet is packed to overflowing, yet my friends call me the "Organization Queen" so it works. I have been doing something like this but I have been strong arming the hanger over a rung on the shelf. This is soooo much better! I am going to use your idea to hang my winter puffy coats. The items in front will stick out a bit, but what the heck? Every inch of space is valuable! Thank you.
