Master Bedroom Makeover: Barn-Style Door on Entry to Master Bath

Pin It



D
o you remember the master bedroom makeover we've been working on? It's amazing when I think of where we started and the amount work that RJNJ did to transform the walls and floors. I remember the feeling of joy when the rug was laid and the canopy bed was delivered.

If you remember, the room was still not complete when the photo above was first posted. We still had doors to install in other parts of the room. This post is all about the entrance to the master bath. Here's the transformation that took place...


BEFORE...strips on walls, brown door and trim, green carpeting...



DURING...walls and floors done, no door to master bath...



AFTER...door to master bath installed...







No, that is not your standard door! We picked up two of these schnazzy old school doors this summer from the garage sale held by Sue Whitney of JunkMarket fame. After a little TLC and bit of polishing, they were ready to be hung! They are mounted on flat track that our parents rescued from an 1800s barn that was being torn down. They are the real deal!! A brass ship's nurse plaque mounted to the center and a ship's key for the upper deck showers inserted in the keyhole adds a bit of fun to the mix!

  13. Girl, I am speechless...which is no easy thing to accomplish. That door is beautiful. Why would anyone in their right mind want new, ever?
    Ask Ron if he wants to run away with me? I love how everything came together over a period of time and patience. Obviously you learned the art of gathering from your folks...I mean really...that track is the cherry on top!

  18. Wow Amy, this is stunning. Tell Ron he did a fabulous job on this addition. I remember him talking to Sue the night we all were hanging out and he was asking her questions about Elizabeths doors upstairs. This turned out just so very cool and you must just be loving this! Way to go Ron.
