The end of this month will mark 1 year that we have called this house our home. It also marks another year of finishing up all the projects that have come with redoing this ol’ house. When we bought this house, we became the owners of a pile of old doors – charming and unique, but all different sizes that would have been too much to custom-build new door jams. If you’ve been reading long, you know I’m not one to throw something like that away. So, we gave lots away, made a headboard and a day bed. (By “we,” I mean my better half made them while I threw together the late-night guacamole necessary for working on such projects.)
One project we’ve had in our minds since we moved in was how to separate the laundry apart from the rest of our bathroom. My dad gave us some old french doors, probably from the early 1900s. We wanted to utilize those, and thought this would be the perfect place.
The pole is an electrical conduit.
6. Position the pole so that the doors roll on the floor and clear any obstacles (such as the washer door at its widest part) as they are guided along by the pole.
More old doors. Another new use!
