I ripped out the cheap wire shelving and replaced it with  nice built in wood shelves and closet rods. Looks much better and gives us much more storage capacity.
Thanks for the step by step process. I've been trying to create a <a href="http://www.bella-systems.com/" rel="nofollow">custom closet near new jersey</a> with no luck so I appreciate your advice on the matter!
when i first worked with wire sheLving <br>it was so Long ago <br>that it was onLy avaiLable wholesale . <br><br>i was hired by the creative cLoset company in Manhattan NYC , <br>just for a few days . <br><br>they wouLd purchase about 3 months worth of wire sheLving <br>from the manufacturer . <br><br>this wouLd come in on a 24 foot Long truck . <br><br>the reguLar instaLLers and the extra Labourers , such as myseLf , <br>would unLoad the Truck and 1st store the raw sheLving . <br><br>the next day we would cut the 12 foot long raw-stock <br>down to prescribed Lengths that they used for rapid instaLLation . <br><br>if needed , we worked a 3rd day to finish the cutting . <br><br>in NYC the wire sheLving was preferred due to the <br>ventiLation . <br><br>you did an exceLLent job for yourself . <br><br>come to my pLace and construct me a dark-room . <br><br>? or, <br>maybe, <br>you need a dark-room ? <br> <br>
Thanks for the kind words, I will say this closet came close to killing me. It moved from a pretty simple design to something much more &quot;constructed&quot;. So I'm taking a pass on your darkroom as I need a break from projects for a while ;-)<br><br>I suppose I could rent out the closet for Mardi Gras and Jazz Fest ;-)
then you better deck-epoxy the fLoor <br>in the manner of this rosewood fingerboard : <br><br>http://www.flickr.com/photos/sfitzstephens/187158838<br><br>it is waterproof , very scratch resistant , <br>you do not have to poLish it to gLass shine for a fLoor . <br><br>and wiLL withstand up to 4 Cajuns @ 1 time . <br><br>
The floors have 4 coats of oil based floor polyurethane as do the shelves (the parts that don't have white paint).
