How to turn a bi-fold door into a double door
Our pantry door was constantly falling off the track and was driving me crazy. I looked into buying a new door (I wouldn't do a bi-fold door again) but was looking at about $100 ( I wanted something with a bit of character). But thought I may as well just try re-using the broken bi-fold door first and turning it into a double door. I figured if it didn't work it would be no loss. But it worked and only cost about $20. This was a really simple project but you will need someone to help you hold the doors.
Painted Seal by Martha Stewart and added cute knobs.
