Closet goes on and on and on…

Closet goes on and on and on…
Where the heck was this idea way back when Matt and I were living in student housing? Our closet doors looked exactly like these.  Flimsy and cheap, but at least ours had handles.  I can’t imagine how anyone ever opened these without pinching a finger or five.
The closet doors were one of the things Abby liked least about her new home, so she got to work making them look like the doors of her dreams. The doors of her dreams happened to be $400 Shaker-style doors.   She did it herself and spent something like $40. I’d call that a win.

    Love this project. I have been wanting to do something like this to my flat, slab front door. Thanks for the inspiration!

    I want to repaint all the trim in my house white because when we built the house we didn’t realize how orange all the trim was. Now that we’ve painted some rooms, it’s awful.

    Gosh that looks 80 billion times better. But I don’t think I could ever accomplish that … looks like there might be geometry involved, or at least very careful measuring, neither of which I’m good at.
