Some old houses were originally built without closets, and have brass hooks on various walls like this:

The not so cool thing is pulling up the rugs in the bedrooms and finding lots of unfinished floor that needs stained and/or varnished, like this:

I completely understand... we moved into an old victorian 6 years ago. First step was putting in a shower. Then came the new roof, sanding/varnishing floors, redoing the woodwork, painting, etc... Good luck! It's definitely a labor of love.
