    You can go to Lowe's or Home Depot and look at the closet shelving and drawers they have, to get ideas then either buy their parts or build your own to fit your needs....

    Look at what you own...if you have a lot of separates and not as much long hanging items, look for ways to hang one bar over the other to accommodate. If you have a lot of shoes/purses, use a small shelf unit or series of shelves to accommodate. Utilize the space under the long hanging clothes for shoes/boots. Ensure that the space above the rods is fully utilized with shelving... out of season items, little used items can be put in pretty boxes/baskets and stored there.

    I do this frequently for my disabled clients on very little money. I go to the lumber store and buy enough wood pole to reach across the closet, and get the metal or wooden brackets to add another pole. You may need to add two pieces of 6" wood the depth of the closet where you are going to install those brackets. Check the height you are going to install the 2nd rod by holding a pair of pants on a hanger against the closet wall so it doesn't drag on the floor.
    Sometimes the top rod is added too low in the closet and you will have to move that top shelf and rod up.
    Frequently I also buy enough 12" melamine shelving to reach across the closet on top of that second rod (leave enough space to fit the hangers in underneath). You can use that for folded sweaters and jeans, or even put shoe boxes on it.
    I usually get 2 or 3 plastic crates or find a couple milk crates for the top shelf to rotate clothes by season. This can really open up the closet.
    You can also buy plastic shoe boxes at the Dollar Tree and take a pic of the shoe and put it on the end of the box, or label it.
    Add a few Command hooks or coat hanger hardware on the sides to hold purses. scarves, belts.
    I have also added 2 recycled kitchen cabinets stacked to one side of a long closet to create shelving for sweaters, purses, and shoes. Take off the doors, get some extra shelves cut, and cut some pieces of moulding to hold those shelves. Paint the whole thing inside and out with white kitchen and bath paint. You can install your rod on the side of the cabinet.

    I use milk crates turned on their sides and stacked to hold such things as my shoes, jeans, sweaters, purses. Helps utilize every inch of a small space. I also use cloth baskets on the shelf area above the hanging rack to store scarves, belts, etc. Hope this helps!
