PAX closet (and SEKKEN sliding doors)

This may not be my most interesting post, but I am very proud of what I did yesterday, all alone. ¬†ūüôā ¬†I assembled¬†a big PAX closet with two 39″ x 93″ sections, SEKKEN sliding doors, and even managed to put the doors on the frame! ¬†All of the instructions show it as a two person job, and the door hanging would have been much easier with a helper, but I did it! ¬†Raaaaaaawwwwwrrrrr! ¬†ūüėÄ

There wasn’t time to install any KOMPLIMENT bars or drawers, and today I am completely worn out. ¬†Hopefully I can manage get that done and finally organise my clothing. ¬†All of my skirts are still¬†in the master bathtub which seemed like the only safe/clean place to deposit them when the movers needed their wardrobe box back. ¬†I’ve been dressing from the laundry basket for far too long and was getting cranky about the disorder, but I didn’t bring the boxes in from the garage until Sunday. ¬†Those things are heavy. ¬†

assembling.JPone section doors are on!

When we moved I was very sad and reluctant to leave behind my beloved 118″ x 93″ PAX and its lovely, sleek, [discontinued] glass sliding doors that I planned to reinstall on new PAX frames (they had been damaged in the last move already and couldn’t handle another.) ¬†I like things to be very organised, and I find that this closet makes me irrationally happy. ¬†Carefully¬†grouped clothing, hanging in easily accessed order, gleaming behind glossy glass: it is a thing of beauty!¬† Uh, what can I say, it is logical to me that it makes me feel serene, but my husband just doesn’t understand why normal closets, walk-ins, or anything else I’ve seen don’t. ¬†He hated the 118″ one, because when I moved into his flat it took over part of the bedroom and left less room for his desk area than he preferred. ¬†When I found that it wouldn’t reasonably fit anyplace in our new house he was annoyingly pleased. ¬†Luckily for me, I could just squeeze the current, narrower, combination with sliding doors into the room that leads into our master suite. ¬†It was originally a bedroom, but previous owners added a second floor master suite and put a spiral staircase where the closet used to be, and I thought it would make a nice “dressing room.”¬†¬†I’ve already assembled a 19″ wide section with a mirrored door along one wall with a tall narrow MALM dresser, and my BILLY shoe-case.

Time to organise my clothes!
