pocket doors

Disappearing Doors

Well I am so excited because this post is inspired by my very own DIY project that struck me like lightning last night. I've been wanting to get a quote for custom cabinetry in our home for awhile but things have been so busy I haven't gotten around to it. It's a HUGE item on my teuxdeux list as we need storage in that room badly. I was at the Habitat ReStore last night for my weekly volunteering and I stumbled up on the perfect storage solution! I've walked past it for months but all of a sudden it clicked. But more on that later - this post isn't even about the cabinetry! In order to achieve the clean architectural look I'm going for I would like to change the existing doors from bi-fold into pocket doors. YES! That's exciting! And with my new DIY idea I might even be able to use a wall mounted pocket door, aka barn style door. AND I am planning to reuse existing doors so what better way to "Use what I have" AND use what was donated?

Below are some drool-worthy pocket doors.
