Well, the Mr. was at it again this past week... No, not another hiatus! The positive feedback on Instagram of our previous update was the fuel he needed to keep going. We thank you for that! He turned on his turbo DIY engine and completed the remaining 6 doors and installed them.
This is the view as you come into our master suite. This is the hallway that separates the closet/ dressing nook to the right, and the master ensuite to the left. Our sleeping quarter is at the end where the chandelier is.
If we hadn't made this change to the original floor plan to replace the his and her closets, then this hallway would look very enclosed. Deleting that separation and widening the entrance of the closet gave the bedroom a much larger impression.
And these are the 6 doors that the Mr. worked on this past week. I'm so glad I can now hide my mess behind them!!
Instead of posting just another regular update, the Mr. had another idea. While he was researching on how to install cabinet doors, it was hard to find a video that demonstrated the process from start to finish. He had to piece together different videos together to grasp the concept.
To ease the research process of other DIYer's, we've put together a short easy guide to install cabinet doors. It goes from start to finish; from drilling of the cup hinges, to installing the door on the cabinet frame, to adjusting the door to fit against each other.
Without further ado, here's our video tutorial! So grab a coffee and take a look! It's only 5 minutes!
This is our very first video tutorial, and we would be grateful to receive any constructive feedback and comments. Please feel free to do so in the comment section below.
Next step is, you know it, to sand and paint the doors... but only the door frames, as we're installing mirrors on them. Then comes the finishing touches of installing crown moulding and lighting. I threw in another last minute wifey request on the doors (oops I did it again?). It'll just make the doors nicer, and I'm glad the Mr. agrees. =)
Stay tuned for more updates! I have a feeling the dressing room/ walk-in closet will be completed VERY soon!!
In the meantime, you can connect with us on our Instagram account to get the latest updates around our house!
