Haunted Mansion Closet Progress

The Haunted Closet (based on a Kathy Orta - PaperPhenomenon design called "Little Miss"). The construction of the closet itself is done except for attaching the drawer front - after I find or make a drawer pull. The chandelier still needs to be modified (I have removed a few items and will add more). The other furnishings have to be set in place but, I'm thinking they will not be permanently fastened in to allow for future changes. I'm all about the options!

I added a wire in the "ceiling" panel to hang the chandelier from before construction of the closet elements. It hangs from a large jump ring.

The doors will not be permanently installed but will be held on by magnets, included in the construction of the mini album that goes on one side and the "screen" that goes on the other. This way (and here is the option factor again! LOL) The two outer compartments can be used to display other items as well. I love the paper here - it looks like screen! (the doors are just leaning).

Here is the roof.

Here are the wooden knobs for the doors. I used these for the feet of the closet as well.

The back and side.

I used 3 sheets of chipboard to raise the closet (while it was lying down) to help me get the ceiling panel on centered and straight! This worked for the bottom panel as well.
This project is sooooo much fun! I am making the album and the screen now - will post the completed project when it's done. Hopefully soon - it's for my Mom and she already wants to get out her Halloween decorations! LOL!Hurry, hurry.....

Ed: Here's a link to the second post about this project:
