Us Fishers are at it as usual. Between clearing the ranch for firewood, running after a wild toddler, demolishing an atrocious mobile home on our property, Seth’s full- time gig, and a never-ending list of DIY’s to complete. Seth just wants to throw his hands in the air and shout out “HALLELUJAH! MY WIFE IS THE BEST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED TO ME! SHE HAS THE BEST BUTT EVER!” Ok, not even close but a girl can dream right? I know he doesn’t say it but he lives for this stuff! Lately, it seems like he is more invested in these projects than me! I’ve created a MONSTER people... a handsome, bearded, balding, DIY workaholic. Watch out HGTV Chack’s coming for you!
These farmhouse style sliding doors were a really fun and easy project for the two of us to tackle together. SO SO EASY! It’s as if the stars aligned and God opened up the heavens on this DIY. There was no yelling, no spontaneous trips down the hill to the hardware store for missing materials, Guy was in a great mood -may have swallowed a few screws though (JK), birds were a-chirping, the chop saw was a- chopin’, beers were a-flown’, and next thing I knew my tangerine dreams had just come true!
We have been meaning to purchase matching wood sliders for our master bedroom closet and bathroom doors, when I came across THIS DIY on Pinterest and decided to make our own instead. The two doors cost us about $45 each to make, and this 11 ft iron farmhouse slider door hardware was super affordable. All together the project cost less than $200! Definitely a bang for our buck and I love love love the way they turned out in our master! The great thing about this DIY is that it was really easy to follow the instructions and the doors can easily be made larger, wider, smaller or whatever size to fit the measurements of your door frame. One tip, when picking out your “tongue and groove” pieces of wood be sure to inspect each piece. You don’t want pieces that aren't straight or that have warped as they have dried out. Again, click HERE for the farmhouse slider DIY that we followed.
Here are some pictures I snapped of the process...
HERE IS THE FINAL LOOK
I knew I wanted to paint the doors a bright color because our master bedroom is very neutral and if you know me...I’m all about color and patterns. I actually went out on a limb on this one and let Seth choose the color! He chose Oxide Copper by Sherwin Williams. When we got home and realized that our accent pillow matched perfectly with the color he chose I immediately promoted him to “assistant designer” (PSYCH! in your dreams Chack...I’m way too controlling to do something like that! Get to know me!).
