first impression – $65 foyer closet door revival

The ugliest thing inside our 4 level split (were) the foyer closet doors, as you can see… 

Weird-ugly-dirty-stupid doors is what I called them. But- they weren’t technically broken so I had to get crafty. I decided to play around with the power saw I got for my birthday this year πŸŽ‰πŸ’ͺπŸΌπŸ’πŸ»

We purchased 8′ Cedar Wood planks that thin enough that I could cover them over the existing closet doors to save on $$$. 

Another money savor was going with wood glue (and patience) since S O M E O N E wouldn’t let me buy a brad nailer and air compressor 😢 

Bought a quart of a nice smokey gray paint to add some richness & hardware from the newly open IKEA πŸ™ŒπŸΌ 


After all was said and done- the project was around $65-

  • Paint $10
  • Cedar Paneling $18/ pack (2)
  • Hardware $18 for both pieces

I couldn’t be happier! One project done… a dozen more to go 😬
