We have pretty large walk in closets under the eves of our cape cod's roof upstairs. They are shaped like triangles. You walk in on the tall side, obviously, and the roof slopes down to the back, so there is only one wall that is the same size as the inside of the house. They are the only storage besides the basement. The smallest one is the size of DS's old room in our little 600 sq ft house! I have plastic totes and paper boxes lined up at the back where the roof slopes down, for storage, but would like to have more space to hold toys and the clothes we are currently using. Each closet has a looonnnggg metal pole that sags in the middle, and pegs (and/or nails! I plan to pull these out & reuse them somewhere else) along one wall. Does anyone have the same type of closets and what did you do to use the space better? I am on a tight budget, but I do have some scrap wood and a hammer (and nails once I pry them out of the walls ). TIA!
