Finally- it's time for the big reveal on the wardrobe doors I built for our Master Bathroom. Again, if you're just joining us the short story is that Bath Crashers built us amazing wardrobes without doors, so they gave me $500 to make some myself. I built them, stained them, and hung a track for them.
Then there was nothing left but to put the glass panels inside my frames. If you remember, our glass panels are actually frosted glass cupboard doors from Ikea. Which reminds me, I should probably submit this to Ikea Hackers. (Does anyone else love that site as much as I do?) I brought the frames up to my bedroom first so that I wouldn't have to carry the full, heavy door up 8 tricky half flights. Please ignore all the scattered items and unmade bed. Whenever I'm working, Ryder brings his non-stop party to wherever I'm at.
Since I had built the frames specifically around the glass panels, they were a really snug fit. Then all I did was screw some brackets into the wood frame and the aluminum frame of the glass panel to connect them together.
Why did I buy one at size #6 and one at #8? Because I'm dangerous like that.
Then I just attached the wheels to the top of each door per the instructions on my track.
Are you ready for this? You better be, it's been the world's longest build up.
Unfortunately my camera wasn't quite up for the challenge to get the whole big system in one shot. You'll have to trust me that it looks 100 times better. Check this before and after.
I'm so proud of how they turned out, and even happier to tell you that the total damage was only $370, leaving us $130 for other projects. Bou-jah! Great news considering we have a big, bad bathroom remodel coming up shortly. But for the time being I'm just going to enjoy this amazing 3 Day bathroom remodel, finally finished after 4 months. Cheers!
