Adding Closets to a Blank Wall

Back in 2010, in our old house, we took our box-shaped office and completely re-did it. We added walls, french doors, closets, and built-in shelves! Stephen and our old neighbor, Billy (who is a fantastic wood-worker) did the reno over a few weekends.

I wanted to break down some of the things we did into blogs, in case it helps inspire you to do this in your own home. I’ll start with adding closets to a blank wall!

Before
Stephen took off the moulding since the closets would cut into them.
Framing the closets out. We taped off the section where the base would go, and they used 2x4s to frame them out. They screwed the frames into the drywall.
Dry wall time! You can see, in the background, that the two closets have dry wall over the frames.
Adding the doors!
The dry wall was painted, and baseboards were added on the sides and fronts of the closets.
We went with wire shelving. These closets were going to be for office supplies, photo albums, etc.

It’s pretty cool to be able to add storage from a blank wall! Check back soon to see what we did in the space between the two closets.
