Master Bedroom Closet

For 25 years, the Ogre and I share a closet.  He’s actually had more items hanging there than I did… while I always had the largest dresser (packed to the brim). Now, however, that I’ve taken to sewing my clothing, that situation is rapidly changing.  I NEED more closet real estate.

I’d love a closet like this…

 

or this…

 

I’d be thrilled with a closet like this…

 

Heck, I’d even ‘settle’ for a closet like this…

 
However, none of these are in the cards for this home.
 
What I’m hoping to accomplish is this…

 

Or this…

 
This one has its’ points, too…

 

I’ve been spending the last two weeks trying to come up with something.  I’ve only got a 6′ X 2.5′ area that HAS to keep the two sliding doors (to keep the cat from sharing her fur with our clothes!).  Somehow, I want to squeeze in a shared longer hanging section for my dresses and his suits and two dual hanging sections.

 

And did I mention that I want to do it for less than $50?  And that the drywall is so brittle that not even anchors will work properly?  Or that the studs are metal?

 

Yeah.  It’s like that.

 

Good thing I like a challenge!

 

Any ideas and observations, suggestions or advice would be MORE than welcome.  I’m a little stumped on this one!

I’d really love to see your comments on the projects I do and the ideas I have.  I learn more from critiques than praise, but, honestly, I adore praise (and who doesn’t?).

Thanks for stopping by.
