The first thing you want to do when starting a new closet renovation is remove any interior shelving and the doors. This will give you an open space to work with so you can start with a clean slate. As you can see here, the builder removed everything that would be a hindrance to his renovation vision.

8.  Focus on the Floor

Next, you’ll want to even out the floor. Since this will be the base for a set of drawers, you will need to sand down the flooring and then build a plywood base so it’s even.

7. Finishing the Plywood Base

As you can see here, the plywood base is almost complete. Now the drawers will sit like they should and there won’t be any problems moving them in and out of the space. One problem solved!

6. Make the Top Shelf

Since this closet calls for a top shelf, you’ll want to purchase the proper plywood and make the correct cuts. Make sure to measure your space, so the shelving you craft fits properly.

5.  Dry Fit the Top Shelf

As you can see, at this point you want to make sure that the different shelves fit, so you should do a dry fitting (not screwing it in ) to make sure it all fits in nicely. The last thing you want is to go to secure it and it’s either too big or too small.

4. Installing the Upper Face Frame

Next, you’ll want to install the upper face frame. As you can now see, the transformation is beginning to take place and soon there will be a whole new closet. Are you excited to see the final result?

3. Adding the Baseframe

Finally, it’s time to install the base frame that will house the two drawers for storage. You will want to make sure that you secure the molding so it all holds together. Once it is dry, the closet is ALMOST finished.

2. Fitting the Plywood

Now it’s time to fit on the remaining plywood and install the drawers to make sure they fit properly. You want to make sure that everything is going to work as you’ve intended and before you permanently fit it all into place, now is the time to make any adjustments you may need to.

And here we are! The brand new closet! Pretty incredible right? It’s amazing how easily you can transform a simple closet into a top tier one with just some plywood, paint and the proper tools. No need to pay for expensive workers to come out and do it, when you can make it a project and feel the accomplishment yourself!
