Back in early-2013, I presented a design for a very complicated wall of cubes for my master bedroom closet. Folks who have followed us for a while will no doubt be 0% surprised that we never built it.
an easier plan that we could actually do.
I think I finally figured out a way we can finish this project and not get a divorce. I read at the Family Handyman site a recommendation to use kitchen cabinetry for built-in bookcases and it occurred to me they might work for my closet! The benefit of using kitchen cabinets is they'll be drilled for adjustable shelves and everything will be built nice and square.
The plan calls for two stacked upper cabinets because I could not find a pantry cabinet that came as wide as I wanted it (they're 25½" wide); I'm sizing these to fit the Sterilite plastic tubs I like to use. The shelves along the right side will be fixed and simply cut to length in order to fill whatever space remains.
Looks like a plan - good luck! xxReplyDelete

We've customized all of our closets using the kits that can be found at the big box stores. It's fairly easy to do. I think they even have a tool that helps you decide on the particular configuration you want. Email me if you want more info or pictures of what we've done.ReplyDelete
We haven't ordered the cabinets yet. I'm going to go to Lowe's tomorrow and I'll look at them before I order. Jeff won't shop at Home Depot anymore.Delete
I wonder if you could find cabinets at your local Habitat for Humanity ReStore. It might be worth a look. ;0DDelete
If I didn't already have half the closet finished, I would be a lot more open to recycling old cabinets but I need to find an option that will blend well with the other half of the closet that is already finished. I looked at Lowes but I didn't like their options. I'll probably order from a local RTA cabinet place.Delete
I've used upper cabinets for things in the past, never though about the closet! Good luck!ReplyDelete
It seems like a good experiment. I hope it works.Delete
