Closet shelves

I know...I know. Shelves...on some store bought brackets?! No floating shelves or something better?! Unfortunately, not this time. We just purchased our first home! Let's just say that my tools have no home though (currently working on the shed). So this non-functional closet had to get redone and redone quickly. There was 1 clothes rod and 3 shelves spanning the back wall. 2 of which were covered by the clothes that were hanging. Stupid design! I started by ripping out the old stuff and then fixing up the walls. Unfortunately, my attempt to retexture was a failure. Oh well...most of the walls will never be seen but I'll always know which means I already have permission to redo it in the future. I added two rods on the wall to the left (out of camera view). 1 up high for me and 1 below for my wife. We have now doubled the rod space. Then I added four 36"x11" shelves on the adjacent in a L shape to maximize that space. Still plenty of room to walk in and get what you need. I also had a chance to get the brushless drill and the Quiet Strike impact driver. Very nice performance out of both! I used my old drill and impact driver on one wall and then the new ones of the other. The new toys...ahem I mean tools were awesome! This closet will be revamped eventually (few years is my guess) but for a quick overhaul and to maximize the space to help get settled in; I am happy with the results.
