adding shelves to the aneboda

dale divides the aneboda wardrobe and adds shelves for more storage.

“i needed some more closet space but i also need storage for boxes and papers. i bought the wardrobe and some sides of another cabinet in the as-is, and some standard hardware pieces, and put it all together.

one side has part of the clothes rail (cut to fit with a pipe cutter), and the other has shelves (also wood from the as-is).

i turned both doors to open in the same direction because of my preference and room set up. i drilled holes in the inside of the walls of the cabinet to fit the standard peg-style shelf holders.”

    I purchased a Hensvik Armoir yesterday for my daughter. We wanted to make it into a dollhouse for her american girl dolls. The only problem we have is we would like to add the send shelf lower than allows. There are only two holes I would need a total of four for the shelf. How could I make or what could I use to make the holes for the shelf I want to add? Please help!

    I know this is a pretty old post, but I was wondering how you got the shelves to stay in place. Thanks!

    Thanks, this is exactly what I wanted to do – good inspiration for me!

  4. I really like this. I just got an Aneboda for my 13-yo son a few weeks ago, and he likes the idea of having a “closet”, but is not so much into the idea of going through all the work to actually hang things on hangers. The extra shelf space would probably be more useful to him.
