I Installing a Basic Closet Organizer

T
his basic, traditional closet organizer was
designed with a bedroom closet in mind, but it
can be adapted for a pantry or entryway closet.
With a custom-built central shelf unit , items such
as shoes, blankets, and sweaters stay organized.
The two upper shelves are perfect for accessory
items or seasonal clothing.
Best of all , you can build this organizer for a
5-foot closet for the cost of a single sheet of plywood,
a clothes pole, and a few feet of 1 x 3 lumber.
