    Building Instructions Wardrobe: That's how it's done

    1, Have all slabs and strips cut into the toom BauMarkt.

    2, For later wall mounting, first drill two 6 mm holes in the rear wall plate (4) of the shoe rack. Now screw the upper and lower plates (3) to the rear wall. Use 4 x 40mm screws and apply glue at the joints. In order to paint the parts easily, the side parts (5) are screwed in later.

    3, In the same way, attach the panel (2) to the top shelf (1).

    4, Now drill all required holes in the topsoil (1). To mark the holes (A) for the cupboard tube holders, put them on the ends of the cabinet tube and align it exactly in the middle of the bottom. Drill holes B and C as shown in the drawing.

    5, In the square timbers (6) drill three 5 mm holes for later assembly.

    6, With 180-grit paper you now round off all edges and smooth all surfaces smooth. Now free everything from the dust and prime all parts.

    7, As the parts dry, trim the wire ropes. The final length of the entire suspension is 610 mm. In order to determine the length of the wire rope, turn the cable tensioner halfway apart and now remove its length from 610 mm. Then calculate 60 mm at each end - this results in the loop. For example: 610 mm - 130 mm (length of the cable tensioner) = 480 mm + 2x 60 mm (length of the loops) = 600 mm. Shorten the wire rope with the side cutter or the pliers and screw the loops at the ends together with the rope clamps. Pull a loop directly through the eye of the cable tensioner!

    8. When all primed parts have dried and sanded down with 240 grit sandpaper, you can paint everything.

    9, After drying, screw the side pieces (5) into the shoe rack.

    10. Now screw on the cupboard tube holders, fasten the eyebolts with nut and washer and screw in the hooks for the shade (the dimensions should be removed from the hangers of the shade).

    11, Now determine the height of the shoe rack and draw the bottom edge with a spirit level on the wall. Directly under this line, secure the square timber (6) to the wall with dowels and the 5 x 90 mm screws. Then place the shelf with the trailing edge on this ledge and then attach the shoe rack to the wall through the back with the 5 x 70's screws.

    12, The length of the roller blind now determines the height of the upper floor, so measure this length and then draw the lower edge of the floor with a spirit level on the wall. Now attach the antik wood (6) back to the lower edge of the line.

    13, Measure now 471 mm from the bar vertically upwards and 50 mm inwards offset the position of the wall hooks and screw them with dowels in the wall.

    14, Now you can put the top floor on the back of the square timber (6) and hang the wire ropes in the wall hooks. Now fix the floor with two screws in the square timber and align it using the rope tensioner and a spirit level. Then you just need to hang the roller blind - and you can now give your new cabinet!

    TIP: You can of course also omit the clothes rail and the shoe rack and instead place a shelf behind the roller blind. If you build several parts side by side, simply connect the side parts of the shoe rack with 4 x 30 screws and the top floors by screwing in a tab. If you would rather have a sliding door or a curtain instead of the roller blind, simply find out in your toom BauMarkt.

    Good wardrobes are durable. They are usually only exchanged because the design is no longer modern. That does not have to be, because the old piece shines in new splendor already by the renewal of the cabinet doors. Hardware stores and furniture stores offer prefabricated doors in various sizes.

    There is also the possibility to allow the doors to be cut to an individual size. The doors have a modern design or are natural and can be designed by yourself. For this you can use paint and brush or adhesive foil. There are also stickers in many shapes and colors, which then spice up the doors.

If the extension is made in height, it must not be heavier than the actual wardrobe. So you can definitely beautify the living with a walk-in closet.

Handles and knobs can be bought in every furniture store or hardware store in all shapes and colors. If you are less skilled in craftsmanship, you can also use decorative moldings. These are made of different materials and can be easily glued to the cabinet.

    Building instructions for a wardrobe: rack

    Everyone has a wardrobe at home, but the size, color and style of the wardrobe vary. On the one hand there are the classic wardrobes in rectangular form, which are equipped with shelves and a clothes rail.

    There are also walk-in wardrobes, which are particularly suitable for small niches or storerooms to transform into a stately wardrobe. However, the model from the furniture store often does not fit into the home bedroom - because the wardrobe is often too high, too low or not long enough.

    In such cases, you can build the wardrobe yourself and completely adapt to your own needs.

    Even a modern wardrobe can be realized quickly. Tips and suggestions can be found here.
