Chapter 1 - Hacking PAX - high gloss FARDAL
I think I've exhausted the topic why it makes sense to hack the PAX - IKEA's closet lines - you can click 'PAX' label at the bottom of this entry and it will take you to my 'hacking PAX' stories.
I think IKEA's high gloss white FARDAL doors are the most often requested item to be hacked. They are just nice doors - AND made in Sweden too! - Swedish quality!
Any time you want to install a PAX doors you need to create a frame that will go into the opening first. It needs to go in square and level - otherwise the door worn't work properly - they will rub and 'bump'.
Here is the frame that I built - it's pretty big - the PAX doors are big.

You can watch the video too! I also talk about the importance of 'reducing quality contrast'. WHAT?!! Yea, watch the video, you will find out what I am talking about. You will gain a better understanding why people hire me to do the work that I do.
