Turn a tiny, unorganized closet into a beautiful built-in file cabinet and display cabinet.

This closet is in our home office, and it was nothing more than junk storage. We now have five sturdy shelves for books, two large file cabinet drawers and one smaller drawer for miscellaneous office supplies. Every closet has different dimensions, so exact part dimensions are not included, but you can take the concept and construction techniques from this closet build and apply it to your own.

Project design and plan by Stefani Terry from Home With Stefani.

Stefani built the drawers and mounted them on 28" Series 757 100-lb. Over-Travel CenterlineĀ® Lifetime Slides. She used the Rockler 2-Pc. Rail/Stile Shaker Cutter Router Bit Set to mill the frame-and-panel door components. She also used custom cut Restoration Textured Glass in the door.
