We took the top half of the armoire off which leaves the bottom drawer part. He really needs these for clothes. It made such a huge difference when you walk in the room. The room looks so much bigger.
We went and got 2 white melamine shelves and brackets (total $55) and put them up close to the ceiling and put almost everything from the old armoire on the shelves. DH wants to put the books up there too but I'd rather not. It's his office so he can do whatever he likes after he sees what I did.
