Closet progress: temporary solution

We finally got fed up with having all our clothes laying around on the floor. That plus a little wife nagging and we setup a temporary closet setup.

We actually went to home depot at like 8:30pm tonight to buy supplies. In general I hate Home Depot. The place is always a zoo, I can never find a person to talk to, and when I do they end up knowing less about the topic than I do.

But not tonight! Sydney helped us with our closet needs - he was right there when we needed him, gave us his full attention, new his stuff cold and went very far out of his way to get us the exact right product we needed (white pipe to hang stuff on vs. the much more accessable chrome stuff). What a pleasure it was to have a good Home Depot experience.

Though I have to mention, if you are ever in Arlington VA and need *anything* hardware store related, stop by Ayers hardware and variety (703-538-5678). They are the classic small hardware store where they give you good advice, treat you like a neighbor and always seem to have what you are looking for.

Anyways, back on topic. We installed the hanging stuff without too many difficulties. And, I got to use my cordless drill, stud finder and laser level all in one night. Dang I felt cool.

I'm not sure what the next move is going to be with the closet. We are considering having a pro do something fancy (and durable). Any suggestions?
