Make a ‘Lazy Susan’ wardrobe

Four-season wardrobe selection at the touch of a finger

Separate your wardrobe by season . . . by formal and informal ensembles. . . group your accessories according to wear . . . all with this beautiful and practical “Lazy Susan” wardrobe.

The natural color and complementing texture of Weyerhaeuser 4-Square plywood and paneling will make the entire unit the focal point of your bedroom . . . a conversation piece to be admired by family and guests.

There is plenty of room in each wardrobe compartment for wrinkle-free hanging . . . and right next door, shelves for hats, shoes, purses and gloves. Each storage section contains three bins with hinged wood paneled covers on the front to shelter hankies, lingerie and sweaters.

At the touch of a finger, an entire new wardrobe comes into reach, with free-wheeling casters rolling smoothly on a strong Weyerhaeuser hardboard base. A folding door ensures complete dust-free protection.
