Q: I have a cheap Ikea wardrobe that has a tall and deep top shelf area that I cannot figure out how to maximize. Right now it just has boxes with small clothes items, but it's awkwardly deep and I'm not using the height.

I've considered moving the rod up but the hanging rod brackets are fixed/glued solid so I'm not sure how I would remove and reaffix them. Also, I'm not sure if the placement of the shelf is structural? Any ideas on how I could hack it, or the kind of storage solutions I could use? I'm at a loss.
