Take that, Closet Hag!

August 10, 2008

Organized closets are a beautiful thing.  But before you invest in Closet Maid, be prepared for some ulcers unless you are more than a remedial DIYer.  DO NOT call their customer service.  (Idiotic exchange with customer service)  They will only read to you the same directions you have in your hands.  If you ask them how to adjust the plans they’ll just tell you “adjust them”.


Little old me figured out what the “highly” trained CSR could not.  When you use a 5′-8′ kit in a 5′ closet, you lose one column of shelves.  You are also left without supports for the front edge of the short ends, so you have to improvise with the unused front support pillar.

You don’t get this…

You get this…

Take that, Closet Hag!

I’ve added about 60% more hanging room and tripled the shelf space.  Not bad for a DIY flunkee 😉



  1. HAHAHA! I think you made “Arlene” cry. She just got bitch slapped via instant message. I looove it!

  2. I think that you have graduated from a DIY flunkee to a DIY brain! Which you used to complete your project. Makes you wonder what HER closet looks like!
