I am sharing how we are building an open closet DIY for under $100 for our master suite in a space that is not yet finished! This is a perfect temporary DIY for under $100!
This closet build has been a dream of mine for quite a few months! We are undergoing a very large home renovation, with no end in sight, and our master bathroom/closet will be one of the last projects we tackle.
If you are looking into building an open closet DIY for under $100, this is the perfect project!
For a temporary fix, we built this amazing open closet system all for under $100 !I am beyond excited to finally have a proper place to store our clothes!
We will be repurposing this lumber for a future renovation, therefore, we left this closet build on the taller side since we didn’t want to make too many cuts on the 2×4’s. The height of our closet is 10′ but could easily be adapted to fit your room/your height/preferences.
The building process
We began by building the four brace pieces. The two outer braces were formed by attaching two 10 foot boards with four 18 inch brace pieces with a handful of wood screws.
Next, we built the two interior sections with the same four 18″ brace pieces as well as two additional pieces in the middle for some extra open shelving.
Next we cut our large shelves to our desired length. We used two pieces on each shelf and just screwed them into place. Our shelf width was 18″ and the length was 10′.
Again, we didn’t want to make too many cuts with our lumber because we will be using all of this again in future projects. We have several more room renovations in our home, our barn, greenhouses, etc! The projects around here are endless and this lumber will definitely be repurposed!
Our basic plan was to have 4 feet of rod length on each side for our clothes and then 2 feet in the middle for a few open shelves to hold baskets and/or shoes. So the total length of our closet build was 10 feet.
Again this could easily be adapted to your room size and preferences!
Since we had not yet cut the inner two shelves, (we had a few snowy days that held us up) we moved onto installing the metal rods so we could get some clothes hung! And I could move on and film this video! I was beyond excited to film this project!
Adding the metal ROds
My husband measured our desired lengths for the metal piping and connected everything together using a circular bit to drill the holes, 3/4″ metal piping, and a couple of T-joint connectors.
I then proceeded to IMMEDIATELY start moving our clothes down here ( I can be a bit impatient, but was also very excited about this project)!
Now I wish was had starting building an Open Closet for under $100 when we first moved into this home!
Our last step was to add the two middle shelves and the project was complete!
We debated staining the lumber since this will probably be our closet for the next year or so, but have decided to just keep these 2x4s in their original state to be used for a future project!
I am in love with how this project turned out and feel like it should be in a display room of a TECOVAS western boot store!
All done in a few days time with and a willing and very handy husband!
