Ikea Pax Tonnes Asian-inspired cherry blossom designed by Mia Gammelgaard. Hacked by Chris and Polly.

Materials: Ikea Pax Tonnes Sliding Doors, White.

Description: Ikea Pax Tonnes Hacked Closet. Here is the built-in closet project we undertook based on a hack we saw on the IKEA Hackers.


I think it turned out rather nicely.

Christopher built a shelf to hold the top tracks and lights for the wardrobe. The bottom tracks are secured to a 2×4 installed crown facing up. The width of the doors left a little gap which Chris closed up with a piece of pine. Chris has an excellent write-up on how the sliding door closet was hacked in his new home. Hop over to his blog for step by step instructions on how to hack a sliding door closet.
