Shelf Dividers

Martha Stewart Living, August 2006

Stacks of shirts, folded linens, and other closet items often need help to keep from toppling into disarray. Wooden shelf brackets used as dividers do the job nicely. Arrange the closet's contents to determine where to place the brackets. Paint the brackets to match the shelves; let dry. Position brackets as pictured. To secure each, drill in two screws from the underside of the shelf.

    Is there a way to use these without drilling? I would live to use them in so many places but don't want to drill. That way they could be moved as needed on the shelves.

    I have wire shelving. Any suggestions?

    I understand how you mount the brackets but are the shelves mounted just like you would mount regular closet shelves? I'm not seeing any mounting for the shelves, themselves.

    I love this idea... but I have wire shelving. Any suggestions?

    They're just those bracket you use to hold up a shelf, like bookshelves. You can buy them anywhere you'd buy shelving, in all shapes, size, color, material (wood, wrought iron, steel, etc.)

    I believe that these wooden shelf brackets might just be what I need to make my space even neater. Thanks

    This is so much easier and cheaper than spending hundreds of dollars on a California closet kit.
