More logical suggestions! The Mrs and I were debating the best way to do something like that. I was thinking a two part epoxy to secure the wood.

Hadn't though about liquid nails. Used that 10 years ago to put in a tub surround and that's still holding up nicely.

I like your idea, will need to consider. Thanks

The strength of Liquid Nails can also be it's greatest weakness. If you think you might want to return the space to original later on, you might consider something less adhesive, such as clear silicone.

Thanks for the pix indeed! That looks great. I'll show the Mrs and she'll tell me what my opinion is! These are some awesome ideas!

I purchased: Qty. 2-48" shelf tracks Qty. 2 pair’s 8" shelf track brackets (1 pair for each shelf – start with just 2 for now you can add another later if you think you want it). Qty. 2 Laminate Shelf boards (You have to re-measure, but it’s the smallest size that will fit the closet width and the depth of the 8” shelf bracket. All this stuff is at your big box store in the shelving section. Google Shelf Track and you’ll see what I’m describing. We stopped at two shelves and decided that we may add a 3rd if we need it, but the floor also serves as your first shelf, for canned goods and heavy items. Here’s how you mount it. Take your time before you drill and double check your measurements. Measure the height from the floor to the counter (I think it was 27 and ľ inches) from the bottom of the closet to the middle of your kitchen counter. This is your main anchor put the largest size wood screw you can fit here. Move the shelf track up so that the middle screw hole is at the mark for your counter. I drilled the hole very slowly and kept checking where it came out on the other side in case I miss measured. Luckily I never saw the drill bit because it was in the counter as planned. Set her in there good with the wood screws into the counter. I put in another set of screws in the bottom, you’ll see these are in the cabinet and won’t be visible. I was going to use a nut and bolt, but never did see where mine came out (under the cabinetry) I just put a small wood screw in for support and left it alone. Same thing happened at the top, the screw went into the work where the TV opens up – you couldn’t see it or get to it to put a nut on, I just used a wood screw for top support. I would have been comfortable with seeing small bolt on the kitchen wall, but the screw was just hidden somewhere in the TV cabinet. I just left well enough alone. For the shelf by the microwave I used a small strip of wood horizontally to lay a shelf on and a super strong epoxy (you have to mix). I glued these horizontal strips on (hold for 6 minutes let set overnight) and cut a piece of laminate wood to fit, clipped the corner for the cord. In both of these setups you have to cut the laminate shelves to fit your space. Table saw is great if you have it. You could do it with hand saw, kind of dreadful though. Chop saw is a little tough you’ll need a bit of hand saw as well or jig – that’s what I had to use. I’ll post pics in a few weeks when we’re out for Thanksgiving. Hope this helps. Post some questions.
Thanks!! This is exactly what I want to do to our little closet!! Cowboy Bob, please take note of this my love!!

I'd also like to see the pics of the medicine cabinet when you get that done!

Thanks again!!

So did not find 8" shelf brackets so going to hold off. I did install three Command Coat Hangers for now. Once I find my brackets, will install tracking. Click image for larger version
