replacing a built-in wardrobe’s sliding doors
bruce‘s wardrobe needed new sliding doors and the pax stordal made a great fit. love the birch finish.
“my wife and i love the malm furniture in our bedroom and needed to find replacement doors for our closet that would complement the furniture. i came across the pax stordal sliding door frames in the as-is department at ikea for $50.00 and bought six 1/8” baltic birch plywood panels for $2.99 each.
i cut the metal frame of the doors down to fit in the existing closet opening in our bedroom and then cut the plywood panels to fit the frame and applied three coats of polyurethane. i used the pax stordal hardware for the top and the existing sliding door hardware i had for the bottom. the side trim for the pax stordal doors was cut and used as a top trim piece on the finished project. the total cost of this hack was under $90.00 for great looking doors.”
