Still waiting for the sliding doors to come but the frame and rails are up and it's nice and solid. Yes I'm a rookie, probably not done it the way a pro would but for £100 of mdf, screws and modesty blocks I think it could be worse

:thumbleft:

you'll find that you'll need to remove a bit of skirting to get the sliding doors fitted, also a bit of an overhang at the top to attach the rail for the sliding doors.

Theres 3 doors, should be able to clear the drawers, as they are slightly raised and will clear the floor track too, I hope!

As for the skirting etc - I've got that in the plan as I'm gonna need to build a 150mm fascia top and sides to make it the right size for the doors. I'm planning on using 38x63 CLS and then 9mm mdf to box it all up, caulk and then paint. Not decided what to put around the edge of the opening, would some architrave look ok?

you have 2 doors one track one on the other so each covering 35% off the width unless you have 3 tracks it wont work

Told you I wasn't a pro!

Well, I guess I should've come here first and sounded it out, looks like the drawers will be out and toy boxes in
