Closet Shelving

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.

    when i first worked with wire sheLving
    it was so Long ago
    that it was onLy avaiLable wholesale .

    i was hired by the creative cLoset company in Manhattan NYC ,
    just for a few days .

    they wouLd purchase about 3 months worth of wire sheLving
    from the manufacturer .

    this wouLd come in on a 24 foot Long truck .

    the reguLar instaLLers and the extra Labourers , such as myseLf ,
    would unLoad the Truck and 1st store the raw sheLving .

    the next day we would cut the 12 foot long raw-stock
    down to prescribed Lengths that they used for rapid instaLLation .

    if needed , we worked a 3rd day to finish the cutting .

    in NYC the wire sheLving was preferred due to the
    ventiLation .

    you did an exceLLent job for yourself .

    come to my pLace and construct me a dark-room .

    ? or,
    you need a dark-room ?

    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 "constructed". So I'm taking a pass on your darkroom as I need a break from projects for a while ;-)

    I suppose I could rent out the closet for Mardi Gras and Jazz Fest ;-)

    then you better deck-epoxy the fLoor
    in the manner of this rosewood fingerboard :

    it is waterproof , very scratch resistant ,
    you do not have to poLish it to gLass shine for a fLoor .

    and wiLL withstand up to 4 Cajuns @ 1 time .

    The floors have 4 coats of oil based floor polyurethane as do the shelves (the parts that don't have white paint).
