Even though I showed you the big reveal of our new wardrobe doors yesterday, there were still a few details that I needed to attend to once they were up. The tracks were working great, and surprisingly enough my design had worked perfectly the first time, sliding smoothly. The only problem was that without a stop at the end of the tracks, they could also slide right off.
So my first plan was to use these rubber bumpers wedged up in the track so that the wheels would find a soft, tough landing.
I couldn’t get an angle on screwing these into the metal tracks in any way, so I tried Gorilla Glue and clamps. And by clamps I mean clothes pins, because that’s all I had that would fit.
I just had to iron on a bit of veneer for the unfinished edge, and stain it to match once it was up and secure.
My tracks came with these bottom spacers, which just happened to be a good matching color for the tile. The only issue was trying to drill through the tile in order to secure them. After about 20 minutes with a masonry bit, I caved and went to buy a $7 porcelain tile bit. It still took a good 5 minutes per hole to bore through each hole in the tile, but I killed the time by jammin' to a little Beastie Boys. Why? Why not?
And that my friends is the real end of the wardrobe door saga. Promise.
