How about a Valentine’s Day gift, a Birthday gift, Mother’s Day gift, Father’s Day gift…of Custom Organization
by Carol Farley, Closet Factory Richmond Designer
When I arrived at my client’s home, I was given a hand drawn sketch of their teen’s dream for his closet. The challenge was to incorporate his dreams and hopes along with the allotted space. There were two wall closets in his room side by side, one had long ago been stripped of closet essentials and an old countertop had been retrofitted into the space (probably leftover from the kitchen remodel). It was an awkward space and was not being used.
After a couple of meetings of the mind, we came up with the perfect solution. We were able to give him the hanging that he wanted, the drawers, the shoe shelves along with shelves for folded clothes behind raised panel doors with glass inserts. All this was designed to fit into the closet opening that had once housed the old countertop.
This beautiful wardrobe closet was constructed of cherry veneer raised panels doors and drawer faces, all perfectly matching his existing bedroom set. We also removed the white bi-fold doors from the other closet and constructed solid wood raised panel doors to match the wardrobe.
What a beautiful Birthday Gift for a very special teen. We installed this on his birthday and were just leaving the driveway when he arrived home!!
