After updating our bedroom windows, we decided to update the closets as well. We first removed the wired closet organizers that we had installed almost 15 years ago. Then, we replaced it with a ClosetMaid wood organizer with drawers. We modified the kit using extra pieces to maximize our space. We had to install the doors a little lower so that they had enough room to open:

Mike also used a jigsaw to cut the bottom so it would sit on top of the base moulding since we didn’t want to have to cut moulding. He added extra screws into the wall to help support it:

We also replaced the closet doors with Trimlite sliding mirror doors. I picked these because I wanted a bottom trackless design. The doors came primed only so I had to paint them (both sides) with our Swiss Coffee color:

Mike had to cut the top tracks to fit. He had to use a metal saw blade. Cutting the metal was very loud and messy:

We also added casing trim around the closets. Mike had to cut the base moulding to make room for the casing:

Mike installed all the trim, and I painted and caulked it:

While installing the casing we decided to lower the top a bit so that it hides the view of the track. The other completed closet:

We still need to replace doors in two other bedrooms.
