DIY - Wardrobe Part 2. Assembling

The thing is, you definitely need a helping hand when assembling this. Thank God a friend of mine is willing to give a hand, with a catch of course. A pizza will do.

To make thing easy when assembling, start at a corner. Pick a corner you want to assemble, bring in a post, then move outwards from there. It is easier that way. Bring in another post, joint the two posts with a shelf using the fitting/bracket that you have purchased together. It is much easy if you start at the bottom, and then move upwards when installing the shelves/cloth rails.

Once you have completed installing the posts and the shelves/cloth rails, the wardrobe is stable enough you don't need to screw the posts up to the ceiling. Took me 2 whole days to complete the installation. But definitely worth every sweat. And penny.

This section near the bathroom door, there is a gap, wide enough to put another shelf and cloth rail, but a post will not fit in. So what I did is took a wood, cut it small enough to fit with the end fitting, screw it to the wall, and then screw the end fitting to the wood. Walla! Got an extra space for our clothes.

And then, I installed some lights and a mirror. The mirror is easy but the lights, I need to hire a wireman to do it for me. I suck in this wiring thing you know.

That's all for now.
