Watching crazy amounts of HGTV and having way to many things has forced me to organize my closet.
How will I do this?
By building shelves into the useless enclosed space.
I've done this before to the useless enclosed space in the corner of my room. See the image below.
I will post pictures as I work on it. So stay tuned.

This here my friends is the greatest music album ever released. ever.
It is technically un-named, but typically goes by Led Zeppelin IV, as it is Led Zeppelin's fourth studio album. I felt the urge to discuss this album after having a discussion last night with a friend, and I was trying to explain exactly why Led Zeppelin is actually the greatest band ever and why this album is such a land mark. First off Zeppelin has influenced almost every aspect of modern music, aside from maybe rap and techno. And IV is just the very pinnacle of there musical talents, though they do have other completely extraordinary songs, every song on this album is flawless and mind blowing.
The album begins with two heavy hitting, straight up rock n roll tracks: Black Dog and Rock n Roll. You cant tell me those songs don't get you moving.
Now after smacking you in the face with just how good Jimmy Pages really is the album then showcases the bands song writing ability with two folk songs the first being The Battle of Evermore and the second being the most played and most requested song of all time, Stairway to Heaven. This is not me saying I think this is the greatest song ever (though I do), this is a fact that it is the most played song EVER.
So after the little over 8 mins of song of Stairway, if your listening to the proper format of vinyl record, you flip it over for the B-side of the album to enjoy three songs in a row that are just packed with amazing lyrics and epic examples of folk rock (Misty Mountain Hop, Four Sticks, and Going to California).
Finally at the end of the album, something you were not prepared for, John Bonham.
Now John Bonham is actually the greatest drummer ever, if you dissagree, I am prepared to prove it to you. haha.
But the last song on the album, When The Levee Breaks, begins with this huge drum beat that just sounds like it goes on for miles, and of course there's Jimmy and John Paul Jones killing it, and Robert Plant sings these amazing lyrics and rips apart this harmonica at the same time.
Its just fantastic.
There's not more I could really say about this album, most of its beyond words to explain, so I basically just recommend you pick it up and listen for yourself.
Thank you for wasting your time and reading this.
