Doors, drawers and knobs

This was an idea born out of desperation and cheapness (relatively speaking that is). As is the case with most old properties nothing is straight or square so in order to build fitted wardrobes in our bedroom we had to come up with an inventive solution. Our next problem was that we needed narrower doors than was available - so to this end I ordered bath panels. I ordered bath side panels and bath ends (to create the top wardrobe doors) and in order to keep all the horizontal lines even Chris glued them together to create one long door but with a notional gap. Notice the innovative use of steps to hold the 'doors' in place.

Eh, voila! Bath panels to wardrobe doors - not bad!
