    Do you have room for a portable wardrobe? Or armoire? You can often find good ones secondhand (and paint it!) or IKEA. :)

    Look at second hand stores (furniture, ones or antique stores, or on-line ) for used wardrobes (as in the Lion, with and..) Older homes didn't always have closets in each room depending on if it were to be used as a bedroom. Also used large bookcases could possibly be transformed too without the shelves and have a clothes hanger pole installed if sturdy enough, and if they have a door installed, bonus!

    I lived in an old house only 1 bedroom had a closet, my daughter did not have one ! I bought a metal storage rack, she put her shoes on the bottom shelf , the next shelf we put 4 bins ( socks/stockings , underwater , bras, and pj's ) the next shelf shirts , the next pants/shorts.

    it held so much more than a dresser. Then , since it was metal i used magnets to hold up a pretty sheet, to cover it all. ** coats were kept in a coat closet we all shared, and her dresses and skirts ,I kept in my closet.

    Get one of the stand alone closet organizers. Hang a curtain across the front, if needed the side. Can use sheet that matches bedspreads or my favorite use a sheet for bedspread & curtain to match. I use a king on a queen/double & full on twin. Wash day off it comes with bedding into wash & dry then back on bed. Great with kids & pets.

    You can build one ! Measure where you want it to be...twice...making sure its deep enough for hangers plus a few inches more. Mark the walls and ceiling so you keep it exact. Make sure the height is a snug fit for the 2x4’s you will need to buy. Build one box frame, so 2” edge is on the floor, (start with the closer end sides) nailing it to the ceiling and floor, making sure its vertical and straight using a level and a square, from all angles, do the corner wall first. Make the 2nd side box and nail it in place, make sure its vertical and straight! Then remeasure the distance between the two end box frames top n bottom before you make the back ( the width of the closet) and cut the 2x4 to go across both the top and floor of the closet, putting them flat against the wall so the 4” wide side faces you, make sure the open end box is snug against them. Nail (or screw, use a drill/driver) these back cross pieces to the back wall. Then from the end box outside screw or nail into the cross pieces so its attached to them. Measure inside of the end box to make boards for your closet rods to be attached, at least two. Screw them in place at the height you want...level first ! ...on each end box. Make more if you want a shelf or two n put them in place, level ! Make a front cross piece box, and nail or screw in place. Use material stapled on the end or whatever you want for on the end. Use a sheet or shower curtain for the front. Depending on the width of your closet, you can use a broom stick or heavy curtain rod or a lead pipe for the rod. You CAN do it... I did ! 😃
