A Closet Door Project
Hi friends! I wanted to share a small project that we finally got finished. Doesn't it feel great crossing off one more project on that big "to-do" list? I personally find great satisfaction in that, almost to the point where my husband will threaten (teasingly) to cross it off before I do! ;)
Awhile back I found a picture of some plain old closet doors that were revamped and made to look nice and prim, but I have no idea who it was and where I saw it (to give credit to). As soon as I saw this picture I knew it was the answer to a dilemma I had with my son's closet doors....they were just those cheap flimsy wooden folding closet doors and his were never painted, but were still ugly and I could never find any bifold doors that I really did like to replace them.
Sooooo...this is what we did....(but can you believe I forgot to take a picture of the "before" doors, but I am sure that most of you have the general idea......
We gave them that prim carriage type barn door look by applying small panels length wise and then a strip across the top and bottom. They looked so nice without paint, but they needed paint to just give a little more color to his room and to the house, since its all brown inside. :)
The photo above makes them look a lot brighter than what they are..
And we went with blue!.....His room is done in reds and blues, so it does tie everything in very nicely.....now, the only thing I am not sure about yet, is going over it with stain?! The debate is out, what do you think?......I think it would prim them up even more, but I just don't want them to appear too dark......
Other than that, I think they really turned out great!
