Who doesn’t need storage space? I’m always thinking about storage space. So I decided to turn my guest closet into a much need storage space. I’m always using rooms and spaces other than what they are meant for. I recruited my husband into building storage shelves in guest closet.
Since we live in Texas, we have more warm weather than cold, and our guest closet isn’t used much for hanging coats. I like to make use of every space in the house. The makeover was very easy to do, and it was needed.
Pictorial Steps: Building Storage Shelves in Guest Closet
The closet width and length need to be measured because you need to know how long to cut each shelf and how many shelves to make according to the length of the closet. Cut sticks to brace your shelf the same width of the shelves you cut-out, one for each side of the closet wall. Make sure each stick is straight.
Place shelf on top of wooden sticks to brace it, no screwing or nailing down is needed to the shelf. It’s your choice to stain (I stained the wood), paint or just leave it raw.
I created three shelves, spaced evenly.
Now I have the space I need to store some of my crafts. I needed something to hold the small items I wanted to store. I paid a visit to the Dollar Store and bought plastic baskets. The baskets fit the shelves perfectly. I have my twine and jute, embroidery hoops, acrylic and wooden stamps organized in baskets now.
I purchased a huge basket to hold some of my yarn and placed it on the floor.
Here is the finished project. So happy to have more storage for my craft supplies.
