That's right: we finally purchased new closet doors - it only took about a year and a half! Check out my first post on Hello Yellow to relive the exhausting adventure of removing the broken mirrored doors, which mushroomed into repairing the floors and replacing the closet organizer.
But now, you won't know that I hang my sweatshirts like a weirdo, or that I've been to a Coach Outlet store one too many times:
It was surprisingly easy to find modern sliding doors that we liked (we purchased ours from The Home Depot). I was immediately drawn to the white glass, which felt light and airy - perfect for a lakehouse.
(I think that I deserve a serious round of applause for backing away from the aqua in the bottom row):
We opted for frameless doors, for a more modern look. Our metal options were limited with the frameless style, and I couldn't get the brushed nickel I wanted, so we opted for white metal. I think the white ended up looking better, anyway, because it blends in with the white trim and walls.
We chose a triple by-pass door so we can keep the closet configuration we like (with a centre bank of drawers) and still access everything with ease. You can see more photos on Hello Yellow.
We're so thrilled! We've had these picked out for awhile but kept putting off the purchase because of the price tag (just over $800 - having three doors instead of two added a bit to the price). I'm happy, though, that we waited, kept saving, and upgraded from a "Builder's Basic" style - that's a definite perk of small space living! Because we only need one set of closet doors, we could pick something we really, really love.
