Every time I opened our entry closet I wanted to scream. I’ve been wanting to re-do it for a long time, and I finally bit the bullet and did it.
Coats, which we accessed most, were often pushed back in the cubbies behind the walls, and the rickety wire shelving in the middle held a bunch of stuff that we hardly ever accessed. So I moved the shelves to the sides, and the hanger rods in the middle. If we need extra hanging space now, we can just take out a couple shelves.
Next comes some paint, a shoe rack, and an umbrella holder. Plus I want to wire up an LED light “fixture” to a reed switch so that the lights come on when you open it up. We’ll see how that one goes…
