It'll take you a nice afternoon to assemble and install it the way you want, but the time spent is well worth it. The system looks great on the wall and functions quite nicely. My only advice is to NOT over tighten the cheap fasteners that come with it. They break very easily. I'm handy enough to have been able to use wood screws and glue in the spots I broke the supplied fasteners. Have on hand your stud finder, a short and long level and a long phillips head screw driver or long extension for your drill to help drive in the screws in tight places. I bought 2 of these units and used them to cover about 19' of closet wall space. The color in the picture is accurate and despite what the other reviews have said- the 12" shelf unit easily accommodates standard hangers and shoe widths/lengths.
I purchased two different John Louis Home closet organizers and am very happy with both. They are a really good value for real wood products and have quality finishes. If you buy these systems take your time and read the assembly instructions thoroughly, particularly if you have never installed these types of systems before. The instructions are clear enough and the tools you will need are not extensive. They have a great contact point for help and parts if needed. They are very responsive!
Have more space in my closet now. My husband installed previous closet system which was horrible. Had cedar lining added to closet, and wood crest closet system. Seems like space doubled compare to other system. Nice quality wood. Love system! Its study, looks good and works great.
