DIY Vintage Doors Into Sliding Closet Doors in Guest Room!
I was challenged by the need to create a comfortable guest room in a 10 x 9 space. I really wanted space to walk around the bed (and for side tables too). Once I planned out the room I realized the existing closets doors were going to be tight and open right into the side of the bed. Easy answer... Barn door right?? But I was going for a vibe that was more boho chic than Farmhouse. So this is what we did instead.
We found some vintage doors on craigslist. They were too large for the opening but I loved them so hubby figured he cut them both down to make one sliding door, eliminating the space needed for the door to open into the room!
Hubby used his mad math skills to cut the doors so they kept the panels even enough to look like it had always been one door.
We used sliding barn wood door hardware from Home Depot to hang the new door.
I did mention the space is small right??!!?? Well, I can't seem to get a finished shot of the entire room together! But here is the before and after door. There are more pics here: http://alifeunfolding.com
