I actually modified this organizer to fit in a small walk in closet instead of the intended use of a straight long closet. I used an on-line design tool prior to ordering to ensure that I could make it work. The result was very nice and very functional. I recommend that you design this carefully before attempting assembly. With the help of a skilled son-in-law it took about 5hrs to complete the closet. The wood is soft and easy to mar so be really careful. A color stick is included so I think they are expecting this. Assembly was a little tricky because of the intended use but all the hardware supplied made it easier. Also take care when cutting the shelves. A little bit of pre-planning on the cuts will help so that you don't cut into a slat. There are only 2 con's to the product that I see. The screws supplied to attach the shelves were tiny and I really question their ability to hold any heavy objects. I bought a size larger. Be sure to pre-drill or you will split the wood. The second con is the rod. The attachment method looks good but takes up a lot of hanger space and requires a number of them when the rod is over 5'. I also lost 3" on each end of the rod due to mounting requirements. Be sure to use ample screws and anchors when mounting to wall. This makes up for the wood used to make the organizer. A hardwood version of this organizer would be a killer product at a slightly higher price point. I liked the results so much that I intend on buying 3 more organizers to redo our Master Walk In closet. I will do something different for the rod to increase strength to enable hanging all of the clothes.
