Pimp my PAX for the kitchen

Yes, I know this wardrobe is ment to be for clothes.

  I needed exactly the width and depth (width 39 1/4 and depth 14) one of the Pax frames comes with. But  I needed also space for my .microwave.

 I assembled the Pax including a few shelves and 2 drawers. The 13 3/4inch shelves has been to small for the microwave. I bought an extra shelf with a depth of 22 7/8 inch and sawed the depth down to 20inch. .On each side of the frame I put 4 steel angle brackets and screwed the shelf on it.

The next step has been the doors. With the bigger shelf the doors couldnt close anymore.And I didnt wanted my microwave inside a closed cupboard.

I sawed the doors down to 40.5inches. So the doors fit well under the bigger shelv.The smaller doors are 22inches.

Here is a picture of my shelf. OK the knobs are still missing, but otherwise its ready.

With the larger doors I didnt have a problem. I choosed the high because of the hinges. This doors comes with 3 drilled holes. 2 holes I used for the larger doors.But for the small doors I had to make a drilled hole for each door by myself. And I made it perfekt. hehehe

The first picture shows the original drilled holes, the second one my work. You wont believe how often I measured the small doors to make it right.

Oh boy, half a year ago I hadnt ever work with a saw and now I sound like a pro LOL

I am so proud of my work 🙂 🙂 🙂
