Because of my guilt, I decided that we needed to makeover his closet. We had $200 in gift cards to Home Depot, so I said I would try to stay around that amount. I only slightly went over and we purchased a handsome looking closet kit. (Dear God, please let it fit! Why was the woman of the family the one who was trusted to measure and design the closet???)
I didn't take any true "Before" pics, but it looked something along these lines:
Well, maybe not quite that bad. (We keep the tennis racquet in the garage.)

Here is what I hope it looks like afterward:
A person can dream, can't they? This is actually the kit I bought, minus the left half and the drawers. Also, I'm sure his clothes will be much more crammed inside on unmatched wire and plastic hangers.
This morning, I took all the clothes out, swept the floor and scrubbed the walls. I took down the hanging bar and the top shelf. Now, I'm trying to get up the nerve to pry off the wood 2x4s with a crow bar. Wish me luck! (And no ER visit!)
