Closet progress

I've been working on a closet organizer for the master bedroom. It's far from done, but here's how it's shaping up so far. 

The center tower will have a tilt-out bin for a hamper with a couple of drawers above that for socks and undies. The rest of the tower will have fixed shelves for sweaters and such. 

The right side will have double rods for lots of hanging space. There will be a shelf above each rod. I found some shelving that we had pulled out of another closet during demo, cut it to size, and cleaned it up. After I scraped off a bunch of old contact paper and sanded it down, I realized it was a 12" wide slab of (what I think is) walnut! The board is way too pretty to just paint and use as shelving, so it's getting put aside - again - for another project down the road. 

So yes, it's got a long way to go, but it's getting there. Hopefully in the next week or so we'll have a place to hang clothes instead of the collapsed zip-up wardrobe on the other side of the closet.
