I had to figure out a way to utilize every inch of that closet! Here's how I did just that:
1. First, I installed drawers and shoe organizers in the center shelves. To do this, I simply bought Closetmaid organizers from Target. Rather than place the whole unit in the shelf, my fabulously handy husband actually build them into the shelf. I added some new handles, and Ta Da! My very own custom closet!

2. I also had to make good use of the additional shelves towards the top of our closet. I bought some baskets to help sort my purses, sweaters, etc.
5. I added additional shoe storage on the top shelf as well as below my husbands very tiny closet section. Since the space below the clothes was wide open, I needed to utilize the extra room!

After extensive organization, almost every inch of our closet has been occupied! Now, if I could only somehow expand the closet...I'll keep dreaming for now!
