DVD storage closet tips


I have a large closet under stairs in my living room that I want to make into a DVD storage area since my husband has every DVD ever made and I am tired of them being stacked all over the place.

Does anyone have any tips for this project? My brother constructed some wood closets for me upstairs so I thought I would try to mimic that on a smaller scale. It will be a bit challenging due to the stairs (slanted wall). I don't know if I should take it right to the wall or stop it all and finish it with a board so they are all the same length. That may make it stronger too. Hmm.

Make the cabinets rectangular and fit them under the stairs. You can vary the sizes as you work from one end to the other. Fill in the sloped pieces between them. Since the staircase is deep, use drawers with deep guides to maximize the storage.
