Retail therapy each time I walk into my new closet
 from Reston, VA,  May 14, 2008

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
