IT AS BEEN NEARLY A YEAR NOW SINCE WE COMPLETED THE RENOVATIONS OF ALL THREE BATHROOMS INCLUDING OUR MASTER BATHROOM…
THIS IS BEYOND PATHETIC!!!
But it is the way things are around here and now it is TOP on my list of
“THINGS LONG PAST OVERDUE!”
I am usually never one to procrastinate…but when I do…I do it well…like a champ…my list of excuses is a mile long…and the hurdles are endless.
One of my “Hurdles” I have to admit…is the DOOR itself. When we were in the hubbub of all of the renovations, you know, a person in your house who fixes THINGS all the time for a living and my carpenter said “Oh hey, I can just make you a door…!!” I said...”Sure!”
I mean, I couldn’t exactly make it could I? But I wonder if it might now be a little too “BARNY” for my bathroom and bed room…That being said, THAT could be the exact thing that makes it perfect..the unexpectedness of it…the surprise…But I had kind of envisioned something more like this:
…….then again..I LOVE this door….!!!
NEXT HURDLE…THE DOOR LOCATION AND should it be installed on IN the bathroom on this wall….
OR IN THE BEDROOM LIKE THIS?
AND SHOULD I PAINT THE DOOR…WHICH EVER DOOR I CHOOSE AND WHEREVER I DECIDE TO INSTALL IT?
………..or leave it beautiful and natural like this?
…………….AND IF I should I paint it?……”what color?”
……………if I did paint it coral cables…that could be amazing…but it would completely dictate the decor choices in my bedroom …could work…could MAKE work….
….also….if I decide the color…should BOTH sides of the door be the same or should the inside part be the color of the wall if will cover” and should the outer side be the color of the bedroom?”or on the bedroom side like this? CAN YOU SEE WHAT A MESS I HAVE MADE OF THIS!
I WILL NOT WEIGH YOU DOWN WITH THE OVERWHELMING NUMBER OF CHOICES….you can see many on this page…and I found sources from ETSY to Home Depot…I personally have fallen in love with this hardware…
I love that it is industrial and yet also…clean and shiny for the bathroom..I found it at Real Sliding Hardware..one of my favorite aspects of this site is the photography..I could really see the nuts and bolts and how the hardware would be installed…it made such a big difference…they are a bit on the higher end price wise thought so not really a budget resource but a very good helper in deciding finishes and styles.
I ALSO LIKE Rustica Hardware…this site is great at educating the customer about the choices they have..and often need to make like…should the guide piece be installed on the wall or the floor…and this is important because say if I do this on the bathroom side, the floors are tile and we cannot drill into them as easily as the wall….and this was one of my favorites:
……………..SO WHERE AND I WITH THE DOOR????…
STILL DECIDING…STILL MULLING OVER THE OPTIONS BUT DETERMINED TO HAVE THIS DOOR…WHATEVER DOOR I DECIDE UPON UP BUT THE END OF MARCH…HEAVEN HELP ME!!!!
AND I AM ASKING FOR YOUR HELP…CAN YOU GUYS GIVE ME YOUR FEEDBACK to the following questions:
1. WHICH DOOR – new barn door they made me or an old door hung up
2. PAINT – YES OR NO
3. IF YES, BOTH SIDES AND WHAT COLORS?
4. HARDWARE – ANY SUGGESTIONS OR EXPERIENCE?
VOTES THUS FAR
DOOR : NEW IIII OLD 0
PAINT: YES IIII NO
I REMOVED THE QUESTION RE SHOULD I PUT IT I THE BEDROOM VS BATHROOM BECAUSE AS IT TURNS OUT …IT MUST GO IN THE BATHROOM AS THER IS NOT APPROPRIATE WALL SPACE IN THE BEDROOM!
THIS WOULD BE SO HELPFUL…AND THE I CAN COMPILE ALL OF OUR IDEAS AND FINISH THIS JOB!!
