Converting Bi-Fold Doors Part 2

Converting Bi-Fold Doors Part 2

Last week I showed you how I converted the bi-fold doors on my bedroom closet. After the jump, see how I utilize the space I've gained in the conversion.

When two vain men share one small closet there's bound to be too much stuff for too little space. Part of the impetus for converting the bi-fold doors on this closet was gaining the use of the backs of the doors for additional storage.

On the right side I used a shoe organizer to hold all of our socks. This alone was worth doing the project! We now have two empty dresser drawers that can be better utilitized another way. I left a few pockets in the shoe organizer empty as I am an avid sock collector.

On the left side, I added a few hooks on the upper half of the door for ties, bags, robes, and so on. On the bottom of the door I installed two mesh Add-A-Pockets from Container Store. I'm currently using these pockets to store belts but after a week of use I'm finding that's not very convenient after all. I'm sure I'll find a better way to utilize these two storage pouches after living with the closet for a month.
