Out with the old, in with a new built-in closet
IKEA items used:
- BRIMNES wardrobe with 2 doors (usually £89, but was on sale for £59)
The upstairs flat that I bought had a terrible old cupboard set in to the wall in the small room (actually added above the stairs).
Instead of making a new cupboard, I enlarged the hole and created a new frame the exact right size for a BRIMNES wardrobe.
Because I was doing this on my own, and didn’t think I could lift the whole cupboard on my own, I built the wardrobe just outside the hole, resting on a large toolbox, then slid it into the hole, and added a nice surround later.
