It looks pretty good, but I think on the end doors I would “X” the support members instead of just making the standard “Z”.
I do applaud you for putting the “Z” board in the correct direction. I have had to go back and do punchout on different places I worked and one of the things that I always hated was when a homeowner put the “Z” board backwards.

Now…. my question to you….. Do you know why you need to put the board that direction? A lot of the newer carpenters out there have no idea that it makes a difference.

One thing I would do is scrape the finish off those bolt heads and darken them with some burnt coffee grounds, then coat them with polyurethane. there are other better ways, but this will put a more finished look to an outstanding job.

Look at your door and think of the pull of gravity.
The goal is to support the door. If you put the angled board so that it is toward the hinge side top, the door wil be allowed to stretch downwards like a pantograph. The way you did it is much stronger because although the boards may move, they have no where to go because the angled board is snubbed up against a solid point… the hinges.

That is a very nice closet you built Dimitrios
You did it the same way I would have. Just jump in with both feet and start working. The outcome is very satisfying.
Hope to see more of your projects soon.
