Next to our bedroom closet we have this awkward shaped open space that also houses an outlet and a thermostat for a heater in the room.
Instead of framing it in, I decided I would install some shelving and make the space more useful.
I had some random craft supplies, fabrics and a sewing machine that I needed space for so this was the perfect spot!
Our house is old so trying to get the shelving straight took some time, I couldn’t go by the outlet and thermostat on the wall since they are extremely crooked! Also, the studs in the wall were more than 16 inches apart.
However, I did learn something valuable that will definitely save us some money when we renovate the bedroom closet; never buy shelving from the shelving aisle! It was twice the price! I needed three 29 inch pieces of shelving and since shelving doesn’t come in that size I would of needed to have the pieces cut. So instead, I decided to check out the hardware section of Home Depot and found a 96 inch piece of melamine white shelving, which is much more sturdy than press wood, and it was only $14.99! I had one of the employees cut the board to the exact measurements I needed and I was done!
