The closet is long, tall, and narrow with a centered door and really hard walls? Hammering nails into the walls doesn't work. It also need a/some rods for hangers.

  • You should use screws, not nails

    I found and salvaged a book case I use in my closet. It is free standing so no nails or screws were required.

    Go to Home Depot/Lowes. They both have a wide array of plastic wire products for this very purpose and they are fairly light so only take a few screws which are provided in the kit.

    You likely have plaster walls. I’d invest in a stud finder ($20).

    Once you’ve established where the wood studs are, you know just where to drill in your holes where you want to nail.

    It will also confirm if you’re working with cinderblock if you find no studs, in which case you’ll need masonry drill bits to install your framing.

    You can then decide if you want to install simple wood framing for shelves and a hanging rod and so forth, or you can buy the wire shelving.
