I hung these from the closet pole. Works great. $20 at Target.

Closet shelves

I ordered stackable closet shelves from Amazon. They fit great using their width as the depth in the closet. Tried the sweater organizer but it wasn't deep enough and things kept falling into the space behind it.

RV Closet

We are full time RVers and closet bar fell down (not much to screw to) so ended up building new rods with ClosetMaid metal from Lowes. It's much stronger and actually gave extra shelf space. Vertical bars in back and front for strong support. Looks good too.

I added shelves in our camper as well. I used the wire shelving and built supports from wood. The shelving is self supporting (I didn't trust the panelling to support the weight)



yes, I know the shelves are backwards and upside down... I did this on purpose so the wire will keep the clothes from sliding off the shelf due to braking force on the way to the campground.

I like that! What do you mean by self supporting?

Thanks

I have the vertical wood strips running all the way to the floor of the closet. So the weight of the shelves sits on the floor.

FYI - I made mine by ripping down strips from some old 2x4s I had in my garage. You could do it for less work by buying 1x2s.

I did put 2 screws in the one vertical wood piece, to keep it from sliding around.

But otherwise the weight is all transferred to the floor.
(the "bed side" of the closet is nothing more than some 1/8" panelling, so there is no way to put a screw into it)

When you say that you put 2 screws in the vertical piece of wood, I'm assuming you put a screw through each of the vertical piece that are up against the outer closet wall...right? If so, how long of a screw, it doesn't seem like it could be very long...

Thanks!

Added wire shelving to our closet and the space where our washer/dryer was. Made a big difference in storage.

Made drawers out of scrap plywood for one of our closets in the wardrobe slide.
