Do you remember about a year ago, when I shared some ideas I had about my interior doors? I said I wanted doors with frosted glass in them to let light into the hallway.
Well, in order to finish up my bedroom redesign, I’ve got to figure out this door dilemma, but I’ve just about given up my search for doors with glass. I’ve looked at Home Depot and other home improvement stores, where the doors would end up costing me over $200 each (door + trim + shims + hardware), plus the tools needed to drill the holes for the door knob. I really don’t want to have to do that.
Then I’ve looked repeatedly at ReStore, but of course finding four doors in different widths that are just alike and in good shape has proven to be an impossible task.
So I’ve moved on to a different idea. Glass is out, but I still want someething beyond the ubiquitous six-panel door. I want something different, something unexpected, something out-of-the-ordinary.
Several weeks ago, while watching Big Bang Theory (the most hilarious show on t.v., in my humble opinion!), I noticed the front doors on the apartments, and I actually really like them!
Can you imagine how easy that would be to do? I already have hollow core doors. I would simply need to adhere thin pieces of MDF on each side of the door, add some nailheads around the edge of the MDF, and the prime and paint! It’s different, it’s a little funky, and it’s incredibly easy!!
I still have about 1000 nailheads left over from my headboard project…
Unfortunately, I think they may be a bit too small. But nailheads actually aren’t too expensive, and I think the store where I bought these had some larger ones.
So what do you think? Is this a silly idea? Or is it a great idea?! I’m anxious to do something, because my current door is a complete eyesore, and my bedroom redesign won’t be complete until I take care of the door issue.
