3. Cut to fit the space at your local hardware store
4. Spray paint with a vibrant color
5. Starting from the top, measure and mark
6. Using a shoe box, space out five shelves
7. Nail at center of shelf at a 45-degree angle (use a screw for concrete/dry wall)

9. Secure with a nail at each end
10. Repeat, and organize your closet!
