Upcycling Ideas: Closet, My house was  full of ugly closet doors. Old, painted over too many times, chipped and nicked. Ugly. I thought about sprucing them up by yet again painting them. Still ugly. I also thought about buying new ones, but decently looking doors are so expensive! $300 for a closet door? No way!
Then one day I came up with an idea to use old wooden blinds with broken tilting mechanisms for refacing the doors. The refacing turned out to be a very easy project. I needed just a few things: a utility knife, a 4-feet long metal ruler, a couple of clumps, my Dremel Multi-max saw, and a good glue. I took the doors down and painted them dark brown, the proceeded with gluing the wooden planks from the blinds onto the doors' front only. The sides remained painted or the doors would not have closed! Then I used the ruler, the clamps, and the Dremel oscillating saw to cut the planks flush with all door sides, put the handles on them, and was done! Now I have expensive looking closet doors for less then $5 each (the cost of glue)., Closets Design

empty closet space into "dressing room", Moved into a new home that had a huge walk in closet in the master.  Builder wanted $2100 to put up wire racks up in all the closets.  I used all that money to build MDF closets in all the closets myself.  I never came close to spending that much money, and I netted much, much more storage space.  I had never made drawers before, so that was the most time consuming/hardest part.  The experience did help me with the garage cabinets.  California closets would have charged about $12,000 for this., Closets Design
