We installed a barn door on the bathroom, and we love it. Let me tell you, that was not an easy project. We were without a bathroom door for about a month because of some setbacks we had making and installing the door. It turned out beautifully in the end though, so no regrets at all.
I want to show off the hardware I installed. They add just the right amount of sparkle with the black doors. I did a lot of searching and sourcing to find the perfect hardware, but I’m thrilled with the result. I absolutely love the handle I found for our bathroom door. It’s proof that a barn door doesn’t have to be rustic, and I love how it blends perfectly with the other glass knobs.
On the inside of the bathroom door, I went with a solid brass handle and latch. The barn door makes accessing the built-in cabinet in the bathroom so much easier. Before I had to completely close the bathroom door to get into the cabinet, and when the door was open, you couldn’t see the built-in. Now the built-in cabinet is a feature that adds character even when the bathroom door is open.
Here’s a peek at our bedroom with the newly painted black door. It makes me feel like I’m going to a beautiful B&B every time I walk through that door. It’s so romantic and makes me feel really special.
For the most part all the doors are done. At least, the doors in the main living areas are done. I still have to paint the closet doors in Jim’s office, and I want to refinish the closet doors in our bedroom. But all of that can wait until after the holidays.
