Adding the Doors

Before adding the doors, check the measurements of your opening. When placed side by side, the finished doors (with the outer corner molding added) should be 112 inch larger than the opening on all four sides.

  1. Cut two door pieces (RR) from 3/4-inch-thick plywood, each measuring 17-1/2 by 66 inches.
  2. Trim all four sides of the doors (RR) with outer corner molding (be sure to miter the molding at a 45-degree angle on each corner). Attach the molding to the doors with glue and wire brads, countersinking the brads.
  3. The easiest method to hang the doors is to lay the armoire on its back. Then you will not be supporting the weight of the doors while you attempt to hang them. Place the doors over the opening so that they meet in the center of the opening. Evenly space three hinges underneath each door. Place two hinges the same distance from the top and bottom of each door, and a third hinge in the center of each door.
  4. Follow the manufacturer's directions to attach the hinges to the doors and to the armoire.
  5. Attach the door handles to the center of the doors, following the manufacturer's directions.
