well my wife has been begging me to hang just one simple rod to hang shoes from. she was gone all weekend shopping so I decided to go buy her a rod. And as most of you know simple easy projects spiral out of control as soon as you walk into the hardware store. So about two carts later this is what I came up with. MDF for the shelves and cheap pine for the fronts. I used to be a laminate floor hater but it is really growing on me. I know I am sure that is against a lot of woodworkers principles but if its fast durable and appealing I am all for it! let me know what you think!

Very nice! This gives me ideas because we have a very similar sized closet and there is only 2 rods on the back wall – not an efficient use of space. What will be hung on the bottom rod on the back wall?

Somebody had a very happy wife when she saw this.
