    Option: Standard Closet System Red Mahogany

    This system is lovely installed. I put two systems on opposing walls of a very small bedroom of my old house (which doesn't have much for traditional closet space) and it looks like a high-end walk in closet room with the addition of an island in the middle (I used a low dresser with a marble top for the island.) Instructions are easy to follow, but it does take a while to get up, particularly if you're working alone, and you will need another person to manage a couple things easily. (But nothing that takes more than a minute or so.) The materials were sturdy, there was more than adequate hardware (extras of things), the stain was even and pretty. TIPS: I have plaster and lath walls, so I could not use the plastic anchors provided, but instead took the time to find studs, and install (my own) longer wood screws directly into the studs when possible. For areas that needed attachment that were not on a stud, I used molly bolts. In addition, since plaster walls are rarely completely flat, I used some composite shims between the J-brackets and the wall where needed. (Wood shims would work fine as well.) But make sure you're using long enough screws so you are sure you go far enough into the stud, since you have the thickness of the bracket, shim, plaster and lath to get thru before you even hit a stud. All in all not much was necessary for adjustment to make the system work well on plaster - I would think you'd have some real problems if you tried to use the plastic stuff in plaster though.

    Option: Standard Closet System Red Mahogany

    Get it and get creative! I've seen this system before for prices up to $80 more by the time shipping was included. Or, with the cost of gas and the hassle of traveling to pick it up in person from a retail vendor and full retail, why bother? This was THE lowes price on the net, we even saved a little more with Club O membership and it was delivered in under a week. (!!!) We used it in a small walk in closet (just about 6'x6' and created our own design to accomodate just 2 studs/side and the limited space to walk in once the clothes were hung (keep in mind, the hangers are at the edge of the 12" shelf so you need to account for the extra inches 1/2 a hanger adds. This was especially key for us since two (of 3) large racks provided were going to be mostly used to as hanging space and hold a lot of weight. What we found was that to maximize the use of the cut off shelf space, we created an extra 12x24 shelf by cutting that amount off the extra long shelf and it gave us another standard shelf to add to the sweater cubby unit. There's plenty of hardware, but one needs to be careful about which screws to use. I'm delighted with the outcome and once my 'caveman' got into a routine and refined the design as we went along, it was a cynch. We'll be ordering more soon for the rest of the house. Oh, the best part - there are other (more expensive sites) which do let you order more shelves and hardware if you do need it. It's got a very clean boutique retail look to it. It's VERY sturdy if installed correctly and by adding an 2 extra wall brackets on each long shelf, I've been able to hang 80 career jackets and trousers which weigh a ton. It looks really great with two long shelves on the right and one long shelf & cubby unit on the left with extra space for other items. This should be helpful: Standard Closet System Package Contents: (3) 12" x 24" Shelf; (3) 12" x 72" Shelf; (5) Wardrobe Bar; (9) Bar Spacer; (4) 12" Curved Angle Bracket; All Hardware

  • Nice Organizer
    Verified Purchase
    Option: Standard Closet System Red Mahogany

    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.

  • Second unit already purchased!

    Option: Standard Closet System Red Mahogany

    We recently installed the John Louis Standard Red Mahogany Closet System in our home and I am pleased with the look and function of the unit. If you are a prospective buyer, here are the things that might be of interest to you as you consider making this purchase. First, if you want it to be structurally sound and look like it does in the picture, you will need some degree of proficiency in basic woodworking and design layout. The system comes with diagrams which lay out a 10 foot closet system, and you will need to modify both the diagram and components of the system to fit your closet (unless your closet is 10 feet wide, then you’re set). The system is made of pine (mahogany stain), so it is forgiving to work with, but the cuts need to be precise and square. Secondly, I have a slight concern over the way the clothes rods attach to the shelves. Don’t get me wrong, overall it is a solid unit. I would be apprehensive about allowing your kid to use it as a ladder, but it can easily support the usual stuff you put in a closet. But the rods are clearly the engineering weak point. The rods are connected to the bottom of the shelf with a wooden bracket. This bracket is secured using one screw in the shelf and one screw in the rod. It is a soft wood and not a very big screw. There are plenty of brackets and plenty of screws, so you could use more, but that means less space on the rod to hang clothes and it is not as aesthetically pleasing. Despite my apprehension, my wife hung her clothes in the unit and nothing has come crashing down, so maybe these guys know just what they are doing. But for my own piece of mind, when I do it again (yes, we just bought another one), I’m going to use wood glue at the connection points. In sum, if you have some minimal woodworking skill, or you can hire someone who does, you will enjoy the look and function of this closet system.

    Option: Standard Closet System Red Mahogany

    I bought 2 John Louis Standard Red Mahogany Closet Systems and installed one on each side of our walk-in, his-her split master closet. It took a whole weekend of lazily working on this to finish both sides and while I would never want to have to do that again, the closet is stunning. It looks like an upscale department store dressing room. Everyone who sees our new closet loves it and I can't even begin to think of using the old wire shelving that we used to have. Well worth the money and time spent. All you need to build it is a tape measurer, level, electric drill and bits, and a saw to cut some pieces so you can fit it custom to your closet dimensions. They give you like 8 different configurations and you can pick from those and then if necessary, just shorten the lengths on one side a little bit so that it fits snug to your closet walls.

  • Great look for low price!

    Option: Standard Closet System Red Mahogany

    If your looking to not spend a lot and get great looks this is what you want. I just finished installing this unit into my closet and it looks great. It took me about 5 hours to put it up and I would say I have a fair knowledge of carpentry. When I first opened the box and took everything out it was very intimidating and the instructions were not very clear but once you take your time, measure your closet then again then again and read the instructions a few times and pick out your choice of configuration (there are about 4-10' and 4-8' configurations not just the picture you see on the website) I have just under a 8 foot reach in closet and I had to trim down some of the shelves to fit into my closet, which this was the most nerve-racking part chopping into the unit you just bought. But like I said measure and measure and measure once more to make sure its what is correct. The instructions really don't give you the clearest description of how much your cutting, you have to stare at your chosen configuration and figure out how much to trim off. Also my house wasn't very level so leveling the unit in my closet would have just made it look crooked, so I took things into my own hands and used the measurements from the floor and ceiling. It's definitely recommended that you drill your hangers into studs in your walls if you have them. Once you get going the instructions start to make a bit more sense. The unit looks fantastic in my closet my only complaint is that the wood is very soft and dents quite easily. It's nice that they supply a scratch pen with the unit. If your looking for something a bit more durable you might want to go with the deluxe model that had the steel rods, but if your going budget minded this is the unit you want, great looks, great price and for the most part if you take your time and think before you start screwing into your wall it is a pretty easy install. One other problem I had was some parts of the walls in my closet were not straight so I had to shim some of the shelf hangers with some washers, might not be a bad idea to have a few of those around when you install. Overall a great option for your closet!

    I had purchased a John Louis mahogany closet system on-line from another vendor about 2 years ago and already knew how much I like the product. I'd just remodeled a second bedroom and was ready to buy another John Louis closet system when I found it offered on OverStock.com. The price is fantastic, the product arrived within a few days with absolutely no damage shipped directly from John Louis. I could not ask for more. I am completely satisfied.

    The 12 inch deep shelves were perfect for my narrow closet (3 1/2 feet wide by 9 1/2 feet long). I have never done a project like this before. I studied the instructions, took my time installing (two full weekends by myself) and am very happy with the results. I used a hand saw (miter box) to cut the shelves.

    Option: Standard Closet System Red Mahogany

    We bought a house where the closets were completely empty. I had a closet system company come out and give us a bid on just the master closet. I was shocked at the $2700.00 price quote. We purchased several of John Louis closet systems and started with the master bedroom closet. We actually used the floor plan the closet system company drew out for us and adapted the John Louis system to it. It took us awhile to put together but once we got it out it went great. We were very careful to use studs in the walls. We are now working on the closet in another bedroom. My daughter loved the look and purchased one for her house which we will help her assemble.

  • Fantastic Shelving Unit!!! HAPPY CLOSETS!
    Verified Purchase
    Option: Standard Closet System Red Mahogany

    I bought this set from the O because it was $100 cheaper than a certain home improvement store. I have a 30in wide closet & a 55in wide closet in my master bedroom We were able to make 2 closets out of this one package. It does not come in giant 8ft shelves. It is three 6feet shelves & three 2 feet shelves. Because we made 2 closets, we did have to go to Lowes & buy comparable brackets (look for Allen+Roth closet brackets) - but they were way cheaper than the John Louis spare brackets you find online. The color is fantastic, the wood is sturdy, solid. It looks gorgeous. Please take the time to read the instructions & draw out your plan. You will not be disappointed. You can only be mad at yourself if you didn't think it through.

    Outstanding product. The construction is well built, solid wood. The color (we purchased red mahogany) is gorgeous. We have shown the finished closet to several friends, all who love it and want to purchase it themselves. I don't think another product comes close for this quality and price. The instructions include several configurations - I chose the one featured in the picture and it looks phenomenal in the closet. My husband has his own side in the closet and chose a different configuration. (We ordered 2 closet systems.) We were originally going to order an extra shelf and the stand alone tower after seeing some other reviews that there wasn't enough shelving, but after installing the system, the included shelving is plenty for us. It certainly was a job installing the shelving - my husband is a general contractor so he didn't have any problems, but it was time-consuming. The shelves can be easily cut down to fit the width/depth of the closet and/or configuration you chose.

  • VERY soft wood
    Verified Purchase
    Option: Standard Closet System Red Mahogany

    This is a very attractive shelving system. But the wood is VERY soft pine. which was dented, chipped and gouged before it even arrived at the job site. I hope I'm wrong, but I don't expect it to hold up well. It would be great for a quick remodel that you planned to sell. It looks wonderful. We were able to conceal much of the damage by putting the dents and dings to the back of the installation. (We do have to get 2 shelves replaced that were severely gouged.) However, if you plan on living with the system for a long time, keep looking. (My husband and I discussed replacing this system with a harder species of wood before we even got the installation finished.)I worry that pine closet rods will be damaged very quickly (but you can order metal rods direct from the manufacturer.) Maybe the system is manufactured with a harder species of wood, but it just isn't available on this site. We did 2 walk-in closets, each 8' X 4', with the same (mirror image) layout in each. We developed our own layout, which is an L-shaped layout along the long wall & across the back (4' ) section. Two 10' systems provided enough shelving and hardware for both closets. Most of the metal hardware was excellent; but the plastic pieces (to be used where there are no studs) were very flimsy. We ended up buying metal hardware to replace the plastic ones, which kept breaking. And the heads of a few of the screws sheared off as we were screwing them into place. (However, we used an electric screw driver rather than a manual one, as was shown on the instructions.) It took us about 20 hours to do both installations. The first installation took about 12 hours and the second about 8 hours. My husband is a construction engineer and we are experienced at DIY projects. The instructions are good; a video would probably be better. All in all, the John Louis system is very attractive, but I worry about the quality. I wish the system was made with harder wood, unfinished (so that it could be stained to match other woodwork), and with all metal closet rods and fittings. It would have been more expensive "up front", but would have been a higher quality, longer lasting system.

    Option: Standard Closet System Red Mahogany

    Overall, we really think this is a good value, however there were many scratches and marks on all pieces. We tried to cover them w/ the corrective pen that is provided, but it did not go on very well. The instructions did not make the least bit of sense so we went our own way and figured it out quite easily. We ordered two units and were able to configure them to cover over 18 feet of wall space. I would buy them again and wish Overstock sold individual pieces. We need 4 more feet of shelving and do not want to buy a whole unit.

    I'm not mechanically inclined. The instructions were easy to follow and the manufacturer provided plenty of hardware. All pieces were included, there was no damage. The completed product is beautiful.Two notes: 1. If your closet configuration is 8', you are going to have to make saw cuts to the shelves.2. A decent 12" - 18" level is mandatory. (I saved $75 at Overstock.com over the warehouseprice for the same product).

    Definitely worth the money. We ordered only one for our walk in closet and plan on ordering another one. Very easy to modify to the size of the closet. It looks very professional and it certainly gives the closet a whole new look to it. Plenty of space and makes everything a lot more organized.The directions were a little confusing at first but once you figured them out it was not too bad. We were able to put all together in about 6 hours. We split it into 2 nights and that worked out great. It was a very wise purchase.

    We purchased several items from this collection. First to put up was the John Louis Delux Red Mahogany Closet System. My husband found the directions to be somewhat user unfriendly, but was very pleased with the quality and materials. Final installed product was very nice, and we were excited about moving along with the other systems. We purchased the John Louis Standard Red Mahogany Closet System strictly for space considerations. The quality is night and day - I was sure we had been duped into buying some sort of knockoff, but the instruction booklet touts the name John Louis. The shelves were warped, the wood split once the screws were driven in. And the screws that don't split the wood are staring at everyone when they come face to face with the unit. First disasterous buy from Overstock! Waste of time, waste of money, waste of brand new walls in a brand new room.Hugely disappointed, disgusted, and may never be back.
