The old house during renovation creates many opportunities to Reuse, Repurpose or Restore.
Each apartment had bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchens.
We tried really hard to use original items as to keep with the integrity of the home.
Bi-Fold doors are not unique.
These weren’t old and had zero sentimental value.
I originally repurposed them into wall art.
You can read about it here
I’m NOT good at artificial flowers and/or greenery and the buckets on the doors always looked half done.
I took them down and now will make room for the Big Ugly Thrifted Cabinet
What can I do to make these bi-fold doors prettier? Functional?
Sometimes I have to just walk away and think about it for a while. Sometimes days. Sometimes months. You get the idea.
To the hoard you go.
I had originally painted them
They were stripped and stained
I searched and searched and searched some more for the perfect addition to the doors. I tried some sconces I had and they DID NOT work. Of course I had already drilled holes, requested help hanging the doors and then decided I didn’t like them.
I was able to find some lights I loved and attached them to the front of the doors
I was unwilling to spend money on an electrician to hard wire the lights. I also didn’t want to run chords behind the doors to an outlet.
Next best thing?
Puck lights with a remote control
This is looking straight down into the light
The puck light just sits in the place where a lightbulb would normally be.
Be safe Florida friends. It’s a wet one today.
