How big is the wardrobe in your roo? I really want to do shelves in our 21dk and I love the fact your wire shelf comes the full depth of the wardrobe. How did you mount it? Thanks!

I drilled 1-1/4" holes on the backside and installed rubber grommets to protect the wires. Also used flexible wire wraps.

My lower wardrobe is 33" x 16-1/2". I used wire shelving from HD, brown vinyl coated by Closetmaid.

Hey I really love your wardrobe shelves. I'd like to do the same, but am terrified of drilling through the back of the wardrobe into an outside wall. How did you know how deep was okay to drill? And how do you keep from drilling too deep when setting the anchors?
Thanks!

You can use a drill depth gauge available at Home Depot, Lowes or Orchard Supply. The screws I used were 1-1/4". I only had to pierce the interior Luan plywood. Measure the wall thickness at the entry door where you can see the cross section of the wall.

jpgowin, one more question for you on your closet shelving. Is your wardrobe freestanding (anchored only to back wall and floor) or do you have storage on either side? My 21ss has a freestanding wardrobe and the side walls are pretty thin. Exactly how thin, I'm not sure, but less than 1/2". I don't know how I am going to securely fasten the end brackets.

My side walls were thin. The brackets seem to hold just fine.
