I sort of casually mentioned that my husband was making built in's for his closet back in October.
It's been a long time coming, but he finally finished them during some of his time off around Christmas.
As a reminder, this is what his closet looked like before.
He had a dresser in it to hold his undies and t-shirts, and some really cheap shelves.
And as you can see, lots of wasted space.
He got the base built in along the back wall and has been working on making drawers
He toyed with the idea of putting drawers in the bottom two shelves but for now likes having quick access to his workout clothes and jeans.
He also put in some custom features that work just for him. He installed a new electrical outlet along the back wall so that he can charge up his phone or ipod. He's also got a recessed shelf so I have easy access to his money jar and a place to put his keys when he gets home.
And he has a drawer in the middle for all of the random cords.
He also likes having easy access to his guitar. He used to just store it in his case, but that took too long to get out, so he built a hanger to hold his guitar as well as a divider to hold his case upright.
The drawers hold everything he needs (yep, he's always this organized...super fun times being married to an engineer!) and they easily slide in and out.
