Luckily, we also have plenty of pieces of wood kicking around the house and finding two pieces to fit the space was a piece of cake.
I decided to take my new toy - a Kregg jig Jr. -for a spin and use pocket holes to secure the shelves to the walls. What can I say - I LOVE that thing!
Pocket holes are no longer a fantasy. You know, like unicorns and garden gnomes!
I used drywall anchors for my screws and then screwed the shelf boards into the nook on the left side of the closet.
Then it was time for primer on door, shelves and trim. I love how even the splotchy coat of primer gives you an idea of beautiful crisp, clean things to come!
