Shelves in bedroom closet

Thinking of putting scheves in the bedroom closet of my Greyhawk 31DS. Thin walls I know, but any suggestions?

Me Mrs., and Maggie

I went to my local ACE hardware and purchased 4 each 36" metal things you screw to the wall and then put in spring clips to hold the shelves at the level you want them. I cut the shelves so they fit tight and once the clips were in added some 3/4 inch weather strip then pushed the shelves in tight. With the shelves in tight they don't rattle. You don't need to use long screws to the metal things. Sorry I don't know the name of these bracket things. Dick

I did something similar, used a stud finder to locate the framing and put the screws into framing. I also let the metal bracket holders go snug against the floor, so most the weight is supported in that fashion. I have had the clips come out on our infamous I-5 with potholes though.

I copied the way someone on this forum did it. In fact the picture with the shelves is theirs, I believe the one without the shelves is mine, or looks just like mine. Old pictures so I don't remember. The metal strip hold most of the weight, I just use the nails or screws that came with the hardware. The shelf will keep the metal strip in place. One thing I added is a small piece of double side foam tape between the shelf and its support to keep things in place and less rattles if empty.Click image for larger version

Oh BTW, before I did the shelves I just used one of those cloth things you hang in the closet. Worked ok, but there was some waisted space in front and in back of it, just cut off the shelve that was too long. I had to cut a dowel rod and put two hooks in it to hang it because the closet only had a metal thing with holes in it to hang your clothes.

Closet Shelves

Thanks for all your suggestions. I like the pop rivets suggestion but what if you want to undo it?

Thanks everyone

Bob

I have a 7" deep sliding door closet which is pretty useless as I don't hang many things.



Took half and made these shelves. Thy each have about a 3/4" lip to keep things from falling off. Held in place with 6 short molly bolts.
