I am so proud of my husband. Yesterday, he worked all day building shelves in my closet. Our food storage has quickly outgrown the small closet we had it in, which is definitely a good thing, so we were in need of a bigger, better pantry.
Okay, here’s my empty closet, left to right. It was just a plain walk-in, with two wire shelves to hang my clothes on. But look at all of the space being wasted!
So, we took all of my clothes out and joined my stuff with hubby’s in his smaller closet. Then Jerry diligently set to work building shelves to make better use of the space.
Here’s what it looks like now. That’s what I’m talking about! Floor to ceiling shelves all around. We’re talking 10 feet tall here, I just couldn’t fit it all in the shot! Jerry even so thoughtfully put a step ladder in there for me, (though I still can’t reach the top two shelves).
He also built in a bookshelf for me. Guess he was tired of walking around the piles of books stacked on the office floor! Yes, I definitely needed more bookshelf space! He thinks of everything. He even measured my tallest books to make sure they’d fit. Can’t beat a custom bookshelf! He’s such a sweetie.
I am SO incredibly pleased with the way it turned out. So much room!! This project definitely made the most of this pretty small space. Oh, and the best part… since he built these shelves out of scrap wood we had laying around, all it cost us was a box of screws.
