Corner Closet DIY

We have struggled with our small master walk in closet and trying to utilize the corner hanging space. There are several organization options but they take up too much hanging room. We finally found a shelf that was tall enough too mount a curved rod onto that wouldn't be too wide and take up all of the hanging space on either side. Our closet dimensions are 59" right wall x 62" facing wall 29" left wall & (26" left Nook).

Curved rods are from Home Depot.
I forgot to take a picture to show the wire shelving we started with. It was a shelf on the wall you are facing and a shelf to the right.
This unit fit in the 26" nook to the left when you walk in the closet. The bottom portion cost $160 and came with the 3 drawers and 3 closet rods and 1 shelf that we didn't use yet. The top tower cost $78 and also came with 3 closet rods and 1 shelf.
These towers are 11" w x 82" t they cost $53 each. The curved rods are 28" and cost $10 each.
We secured each shelf to the wall studs at the top.
We have 23" of hanging space for these straight bars.
We did 1 bar for long hanging and jeans, it is 20" and there is room for the clothes hamper below.
Here is a photo with our clothing added.

    This is a great idea I am going to try it in my sons closet. The links worked for me and the stuff is on the way.

    Thank you for this! This is the first end-result project where it shows that you actually have a lot of clothing & miscellaneous things whereas most of the projects end result show a few items of clothing and a few pair of shoes. this looks like a good project!
