Today we’re going to make a final push to build the master closet starting with the shoe tower.
After that we’re taking 2 weekends off to party.
We’ve begun to add hanging poles to each closet section.
We started with the section near the window which will get a shelf above the pole for additional storage.
To hang the pole I allowed 3″ from the top of the pole to the bottom of the future shelf. There needs to be enough clearance to actually put a hanger on the pole. I also allowed 12 inches from the back of the closet so that clothing could hang without be smashed against the rear wall.
After marking a + on the spot I eyeballed the solid round holder over the +. On the opposite wall I did the same thing only marking the bottom screw hole. Then I matched the bottom screw hole on the open-ended bracket and marked the rest of the holes.
I drilled the designated markings and screwed the brackets into place.
Meanwhile my friend used a pipe cutter to shorten the 6-foot long steel pole to the designated length which I had marked with a Sharpie.
Each tower gets a different configuration of poles with a consistent 12-inch measurement from the back of the closet.
It won’t be long now until clothing can be hung in the closet.
Do you have a favorite style of hanger?
