This is a new closet I made for my mother, she has been wanting a new one for a while now because the one the contractor who built the house made was less than functional… unfortunately when I was half way done ripping that one out I realized I didn’t take a “before” shot, oops. Basically it was construction grade plywood painted white and instead of having two corner cabinets it just had dead space that was unusable. The cabinets are birch stained espresso with three coats of lacquer. I couldn’t really get a good shot of it all due to confined closet space but you can get a good look at the over all layout with the sketchup pic at the end. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone!
