I've seen some of the shelves others have made, but when I stumbled across this little shelving unit at Home Depot, it was just too easy. The shelves are almost the perfect size for the inside of the 179 wardrobe closet.

All I did was make a couple of 1/2" x 1/2" cleats for each shelf and screwed them to the wall with some 3/4" lath screws. The only thing I would do different is make the cleats 5/8" wide, as the walls in the closet are not parallel, and the middle shelf is real close to the edge of the 1/2" cleats.

Oh. You do have to take a chunk out of one of the corners to clear the pre-existing cleat inside the door on the right hand side.

Looks good. I just spent a couple hours on a shelving mod today myself.
