Business Glassdoor

Wardrobe from HEMNES Glass Door Cabinet

Materials: HEMNES 10176268 Glass Door Cabinet, plumbing hardware

My office is outfitted with HEMNES bookcases, glass door cabinets, and a HEMNES dresser as a TV stand.

Without a closet, I needed a place to hang a jacket and to keep a spare outfit.

Enter HEMNES Glass Door Cabinet. I assembled it per the instructions EXCEPT:

1 – I did not use the shelves

2 – Prior to installing the top of the cabinet

a – Assemble plumbing hardware as shown below
b – Using a utility knife, lightly relieve the two horizontal cross bars to clear the plumbing flanges
c – Lay the plumbing hardware in place, install the top of the cabinet
d – Attach the plumbing hardware with 3/4″ self-tapping screws


The hardware is 1/2″ threaded plumbing hardware. One 8″ nipple, two 1″ nipples, two flanges, two 90 angles. A total of $11 at Home Depot!

See self-explanatory photos!

    If you have clients in there often, you should buy vinyl sheets of “frosted glass” to make them opaque.

    Looks great! When I have my own office at work I will definitely implement some solution as this one myself! Thanks!
