Step 1 Remove doors and each door’s center panel. Route an edge for glass inserts.
Step 2 Measure the back of the armoire’s interior box. Cut a piece of chipboard the same size, and wallpaper or paint it as desired.
Step 3 Choose and assemble organizational additions. We chose a three-drawer unit and topped it with an unfinished aspen shelf spanning the interior box. Cut aspen board to size then attach a square dowel to the interior of armoire, opposite the drawer unit, to hold the shelf (A). We added wineglass holders on the bottom of one side of the shelf.
Step 4 Install glass panels cut to size in the armoire doors using glazier points. Tip: Visit a hardware store and ask for glass cut to your specific measurements.
Step 5 Prep, prime, and paint piece (see
“Like a Pro,” page 79) as desired. Install the wallpapered board, the drawer unit, and shelf. Rehang doors and attach door hardware.
