This was the closet before its transformation. The wire shelves were deep, too deep - and there were only 4 of them. The wire was flimsy too - it would bend under the weight of whatever was placed on it.
I patched and painted the walls. Then hubby installed the brackets and shelf supports, and cut the shelves to fit.
In the past I stored all my pots and pans in lower cabinets. I had to kneel down and carefully stack and restack in order to get everything to fit - kind of a pain, but I managed. Then I started having the kids put the dishes away. They did NOT share in my vision of a neatly stacked and organized cabinet... they would literally shove things in with no rhyme or reason. Pots and lids were never together. Items would tumble out when I opened the door. And I was constantly worried that my non-stick items would get damaged.
IT WAS SO FRUSTRATING.
Now each pot and pan has it's own shelf space, lids neatly stored with each pan. I still need to add a few hooks to the walls to optimize unused space, but for now, I can take a deep breath and smile - ahhhhhhhh!
