You do like to keep an eye on detail.

How long did it take you to do the whole thing, including the repainting of the wall?

It took most of 2 days to do the complete closet.

Love it! These shelves look grea, so much nicer than wire shelves. Can’t wait tile the next one comparing to the ones you built for you daughter!

This looks great! Can’t wait to give it a go at my new apartment. Space is at a premium so a solution like this would be wonderful.

Good job on the video too, really easy to follow.

Thanks for the post, I’m a small local flooring specialist in my town of Raleigh, NC and one of my clients recently turned me on to your show/site.
We have a lot of clients who are always looking to do a lot of things with little space, so I’ll definitely pass this post along.

Really great post. Can never seem to create enough storage space in my closet. Thanks.

Great video and great work, Paul, thank you! I think I speak for everyone when I say keep it up :))) It is always great to add some shelves in the closet – the space never seems enough!
