Ellyn G. Elstein of Creative Closets LTD, Allentown, PA, is a finalist in the 2015 Top Shelf Design Awards competition with her project “Not YourTtypical Closet” entered in the Closet: Reach-In category.

Project Description: Please come to my office says the CEO to his star salesman. As he enters the boss offers Coffee Juice, Scotch or Bourbon.

The Salesman makes his choice and looks around for the assistant to bring the drink in. Instead he sees the boss go to the regular 5 foot bi-fold doors .

They open and the Refreshment center is open. Complete with a mini stainless refrigerator , a Kuerig, shelves with mugs and supplies and goodies.

Next the Pres. pull our a hanger with a Golf Shirt and Sweatshirt for his high level employee, Now for the real treat.

A safe built into the right wall of the closet is opened and a glass etched award comes out with his name and new title. Certainly not that typical closet. Full of all types of surprises!!

Project Construction Details: Installation was fairly straight forward except for installing around the safe in the wall and working around a duct.

Materials Used: Franklin Cherry Melamine, Drawer Front Thermo-foil Ogee Edged, Drawer Box Birch Dove-tail, Construction, Handle Top-Knobs M925 Oil Rubbed Bronze, Rod round Oil Rubbed Bronze
