|I swear the builders got these doors on special. . . |
every room has one, and this room has three!!
Back in May I found someone on Front Porch Forum giving away bifold doors from a renovation in here in the valley, and I knew they would be the perfect solution. I initially planned to keep them as bifolds, but couldn't find a short enough track to fit the space so I decided to repurpose them into double doors for each opening. I removed all of the bifold hardware, replaced/added new knobs, and found some narrow hinges to attach them to the door frames. The doors are narrower than the openings, so I also added 1 x 4 pine boards vertically into the sides of the frames to fill in a bit of space (we had to rip them down to 2.5 in to fit the width of the door frame itself). A few hours of nailing, swearing, pilot-hole drilling, and door-hanging later, and viola!
In case you missed it, phase one happened here!
