They do work well, but I wouldn't underestimate humanities ability to put too much weight on a closet shelf until we are right on the hairs edge of breakage. It's almost like a subliminal sport that we don't know we are playing.

Ken, we supplemented existing shelving in one of the closets in our old home with Rubbermaid hardware similar to this.

The system is well-designed and very strong. You install a horizontal rail at the top -- ideally into studs -- which gives you a level starting point. You then hang the vertical rails from it at your required width -- again, ideally in front of studs -- and then screw those into place. Use three tails if you're spanning a large width. Then you pop shelf brackets onto the rails at your desired heights and throw your wood shelves onto them. Highly recommended.

You'll need to return some of that lumber, though.

Homeowners don't return wood, they just save it for a future project.

But don't you wish you could use your wood soon after you got it?

A new coat of paint might raise your curb appeal.
