A closet organizer can be a great way to keep things stored in a tidy fashion. However, over time, it may become inadequate for your storage needs, or, look dated and too utilitarian. Wire shelving is typically chosen for its function rather than its appearance, so, when it’s time to upgrade, you’ll need to take down the wire closet organizer.
Though this is a simple and straightforward task, it’s not one that can be done in a single step. Because these systems are most often held in-place by retaining screws, and just as often become part of an interior paint job, you’ll have more to do than simply unfasten some screws.
Closet Organizer Removal Guide
The first step, of course, is to clear the closet out completely. You’ll need every bit of space to move about in a confined area. Depending on how the closet is configured and the size of the shelving, you might have to take the doors down temporarily. Even if you can get the job done without taking the doors out, it’s a good idea to do so to have enough room to install another organization system.
The first thing you should do when removing a closet system is to clear out the items that are currently stored there. Finding them a temporary home will give you the space you need to revamp your closet. Once the space is empty, you’re ready to remove those old shelves. With a little time, and the following tips and tricks, you will be on your way to turning that old space from drab to fab. —Storagnization Blog by ClosetMaid
Once the closet is empty, get the right tools: a power driver or screwdriver, a pry bar, a box cutter, a paint scraper, spackling, a paint brush, and paint. Them determine how the shelves are mounted to the walls. On some systems, there will be a series of small, U-shaped retaining clips, holding the bottom of the shelves. In other systems, the brackets are a triangle shape, and extend the width of the shelves, affixed to the bottom.
If the U-clips are supporting the wire shelves, simply pop the shelves up and out from the mounting clips. Then, you can unfasten the retaining screws and pull the clips off the wall. If the mounts are affixed to the shelves, unfasten the retaining screws, starting at one end, working toward the other.
Patching the Closet
There will be holes left in the wall, which you can easily patch using spackling paste. Simply dab a small amount of spackle paste over the holes, using a paint scraper to fill the holes and then scrape across to make the paste flush with the wall surface. Wait for the spackle to dry, then paint the walls with interior paint.
