Yay! I got the closet system installed. After looking online at prices (these things can get expensive), and reviews (what did we do before reviews?), I decided on the Rubbermaid 3H89 Configurations 4-to-8 Foot Deluxe Closet Kit in white. And no, they are not paying me to say this. I liked the price and the reviews. I liked all of the different hanging bars and shelving options and how I could easily change the configuration as needed. Most importantly though it looked like something that I would be able to install on my own with a little elbow grease.
Overall I would say it was straightforward and physically easy to do. The two things that I found to hardest were finding the studs and inserting the drywall anchors. Otherwise it was a matter of measuring, drilling and using a level. This is really so much nicer than the wobbly shelf and bar that were in there before. I'm glad I went this this option.
As you can see, we still have to put most of our clothes in it still, but now we can! I also have to put the doors back on, but I want to get the clothes in first.The final big thing in this room will be the carpeting. Isn't that such a lovely green? All in good time though. For now, I am excited I have this done and being that much closer to a finished room!
