DIY Angled Door
For some strange reason none of our bedrooms in our old farmhouse had doors. So... we have slowly been adding them room by room. Below we will explain how to DIY an angled door!
Our son Ryan's doorway butted right up to the angled roof line making it really tough to hang a standard door here without it opening into the hallway. We didn't want the door to open into the hallway because it would block the hallway window. We had to build an angled door for his doorway so it could open into the room and allow for more natural light.
The first thing we did was change up the Doorway to our son's room so it could accommodate an angled door.
We bought a standard 30" unfinished door from Lowes. My husband, Jason cut the corner off the top of the door to match the angle of the roof line. He used 1/4 inch MDF strips to give a little more interest to the door on both sides.
After we finished adding the MDF to the Door with glue & pin nails, we added trim to the Doorway. Lastly, we filled all the holes & primed & painted everything white.
