Had a client that wanted to store a change of clothes at her office, but had very limited space. So with that in mind we worked together and came up with this piece, its 16” deep and 30” wide. It has hanging space in the middle, the drawer on the bottom is for shoes, and the top space is used for hats or handbags. Once it was installed, it was rapidly put to good use.

I’d never thought of running the hanger rod fore and aft like that, but it makes sense.

Very nice!
My “in the works” armiore spec’s for my son are a bit differant but I like your design.

You need to have ~24” min depth for an across hander rod…only down side is its little harder to see the clothes you have.
However your client is OK with that as its not her main wardrobe.

I’ve looked it a lot of project pictures lately and I’m wondering why some of the maple projects pics turn out pinky…is it the lighting in the shop?..surely thats not actually color.

I think she only hangs up her “Super Hero” suit in there, she is a lawyer.

As for the color, a lot of my maple pieces tend to look “pinkish” in the photos, the sad part of this wardrobe is that it got painted. I’m just glad I snapped a few photos before the painting took place.
