Bathroom Door Fix

 

This was our bathroom door.  Just a normal bathroom door.  Problem with this door was that it opened into the bathroom but would just miss hitting the front of the toilet.  It just was awkward.  

Terry to the rescue!  He took off the door.  We had two french doors that were on the opening between the living room and kitchen. 

Really no value but for decoration to have those doors to close off the kitchen from the rest of the rooms. 

Terry measured them and found they would work perfect to make rolling doors for this bathroom.

Terry got the door rollers from Home Depot and hung that above the door opening.  Then he attached the two french doors from the kitchen onto the rollers.





Now we have these rolling hung doors that will open and shut easily and still leaves space between the wall and vanity.  We have easy access to my hand towels and lights.

Easy fix and now we do not have a door that opens into the room and blocks the toilet.  He still has a few things to do to these doors like put in a hidden latch to be able to latch and lock the doors if desired.

Happy to use these decorative french style doors from the kitchen in this bathroom.  This way we did not have to spend a lot of money for new doors.  Just the cost of the rollers which were not expensive from Home Depot.  I am going to look for handles that are silver like the rest of the bathroom fixtures.

Taking pictures in a bathroom is hard.  With no natural light I had to put on all the lights and practically stand on the toilet and in the shower to get these pictures lol!

Hope all is well with you.  Still have a few issues with my kidney stones but getting better. 
I don't know what happened but when I turned 60 a few years ago it seems I am having weird things happen to my body!!!!!

Have a great rest of the week and weekend.
Hugs,
Kris

  1. Perfect fix, that Terry is a gold mine. I watched that 82 yr old woman who went up with the Jeff Bezos flight to outer space and I wondered, "How come she got that body and I got this one?" But, for most of us, it's a sad reality, things not so good just begin to happen. Hugs to you, Cil

  2. Terry is a genius! Those doors look so luxurious, as does the whole bathroom. Not happy to hear things went downhill for you once you hit 60. That'll be me next year! Barely holding it together now! 😬 Happy Thursday, Kris!

  4. Doesn't the one door roll over the light switch and towel rack? They look great!

    1. Nope it rolls away from the lights and towels.  The wall is indented there and the place where the rollers are is back a couple of inches so there is a few inches between the door and wall where the lights are and towel.  Hope that makes sense.  xoxo Kris

  28. How cool! I love this. You and Terry really are a great pair. So neat that you were able to repurpose doors you already have, and the way you put it all together as rolling doors is fantastic. Hugs.

  29. Wow hooray for Terry’s ingenuity! They are quite perfect! I know what you mean about getting into the 60’s! More aches and health issues!

  30. Looks great Kris! I turned 60 in April, I hear ya on the issues! My memory is very bad, I hope it was the covid I had causing it. I heard it takes a year to get over the brain fog!

  31. What a brilliant idea! Plus, they fit perfectly and don't open so close to your toilet. Your bathroom is super cute! And in my opinion if you have to choose a room without a window, I'd always pick a bathroom!!!

    Have a great weekend,
    RJ

  32. Hi Kris,
    Oh My what a lovely fix.......I just love it, and it really is such a great idea. So great that you already had the doors too. Just love when you can move things around to create a new look, and also a much needed fix. That is so neat they fit perfectly in that space. You guys are just so amazing. I know you must be loving it too, to have that door out of the way....cause that sort of thing can be so annoying and intrusive. Thanks for coming by today and for your kind comments. Always love hearing from you and hope you and Terry have a lovely weekend.
    Blessings, Nellie

  34. Ok that is just amazing! I would not have even thought of that!!! YOU go Terry!

  35. Boy that was an easy fix. Never understood why bathroom doors opened to inside instead of outside. Hope your kidney stones are soon a thing of the past. I had them too and found out mine were caused by a Parathyroid adenoma. Until then we were under the impression that kidney did not even work, found out 9 percent, just enough to get oodles of stones, LOL. But hopefully they will figure out how to keep them at bay soon.
