Closet systems are another way to make the most of your space. They can be expensive and not always fit the exact dimensions of your closet. I’m obsessive about utilizing every inch of space  so I decided to design, and with the help of my hubby, build our own custom closet.  We were fairly new to DIY woodworking at the time so I kept the plans simple. I’ll share my process in next week’s article along with the basics of measuring, designing and building a custom closet to fit your needs that most any DIYer can tackle.
