Cleaning out the closet

My wife ripped through all of her stuff in our master bedroom closet today, putting away all her summer clothes and all of her non-maternity clothes. End result: very, very few clothes of hers left in the closet. Once she was done, I decided to attack my own.

First step: remove the door. The door opens into the closet, toward the shelves/hangers. This effectively makes 3 feet of shelving/hanger space inaccessible. Moved some things around, put quite a few shirts and pants on the Salvation Army pile, took the winter clothes out and put some summer clothes away, and my section was looking a little better.

We also attacked the back wall and opposite side. We cleared out the plastic shelves that the previous owner had left, and broke them down for use elsewhere (I have shelves for the basement now!). The weird cabinet that was in there is gone now. Shoes will all go under the hanging stuff on the right side of the closet.

Looking at what's there now, we think we'll have enough space to put the changing table and maybe even a small dresser for the baby clothes in the closet. That solves a lot of problems for us.
