can i make customised pax plexiglass sliding doors?

“i have two questions and i wonder if anyone can help.

  1. pax wardrobe – i don’t want to pay for the glass sliding doors… i was thinking of gettting a pax frame, buying the malm sliding door runners, and then buying plexiglass of a pleasing sort and making sliding doors out of that. has anyone tried this?
  2. failing that, i might go for aneboda doors (pix, right) … but i hate the plastic on the center panel! does anyone know if it’s possible to remove their cheap plastic panel and insert something else more sturdy and/or attractive? i’m not sure how the plastic is attached to the door, if it can be unscrewed, or cut out, or what.” - michelle

    We like to insert photo sheets of various sizes into the window of the doors. Printing out large 8.5×11 inch pages and inserting them so that they bulge outward gives a cool 3D effect. I have been considering lighting them from behind with low wattage (or even voltage) lighting like a cheap string of Christmas tree lights.

    I bought a couple of aneboda doors too. I couln’t find a way to replace the plastics but I covered it with a 60′s style wallpaper. If you unscrew the four tiny screws, you can fit the paper under the wood.
