Can I build a more useful coat/linen closet?

We have a 1950s post war small house. The only coat and linens storage is this one area in our small “hallway”, about 50” in length. I just don’t find it to be a good use of space. The shelves are too deep but also somehow don’t actually fit sheets, towels, etc. The drawers don’t open easily or fit anything useful. And the coat closet is small, especially for men’s sized coats.

What I think I want is to dismantle the whole thing and rebuild one large closet with an organizer for linen storage.

Thoughts? Is this a big project or an easy one? Is any part of it DIY-able for two adults that aren’t super handy?
