So this kind of thing - bolt a narrow tall bookcase to the wall for stability and build up to ceiling with a shelf over top and molding to fake built-in look. Add drawers/shelves with baskets on lower half with short (shirt-length) closet rod above, and shelves to ceiling on half for maximum storage. Long stuff can be hung in the old closet, and we can get rid of all the dressers. Whew.
