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.
