My Adorable Laundry Door

When we remodeled our townhouse and added a laundry room to the second floor, I wanted a glass pocket door to provide both privacy and light.




This door from Home Depot was one of my choices, but it was a little too busy for me.




Instead I went with this frosted pocket door from Home Depot.  I can’t see a pile of dirty laundry when I walk down the hall but yet a little sunshine from the laundry room window still brightens the hall (along with our solar tube).





When the door is open (it’s hidden in the wall) the view looks like this.  It’s not bad, but I keep the door closed most of the time.




Our pantry has the same type of frosted pocket door, and I upgraded it with a decal that Jordan made for me.  She received a Silhouette Cameo for Christmas, and making it was simple for her.  I like my pantry sign so much that I asked her to also make one for the laundry room.



First we had a session on Skype to select the font and the font size.  I wanted something that was a good companion to the pantry sign even though they were on different floors in our place.  I am OCD like that.  This is a shot of my computer screen which was actually showing what Jordan was typing onto her screen in Syracuse.  You gotta love technology.




 Unlike hanging the faux French headboard in our master bedroom (here), this was a small project that I could do alone.  All I needed was a level, a pencil, and a measuring tape.




I measured the door, selected the place where the sign would go, found the center, and drew a level line across the surface.  Then I gently peeled the backing from the decal.




Then I placed it on the window and smoothed it out with the edge of a credit card.  It was important to remove any air bumps and to make sure it was securely sticking to the window.





Next I removed the top layer, and voila!  My door is gorgeous!!!





From near ……




…..or far, the sign looks great, and I am as pleased as punch.


Take care.

    I’m such a fan of pocket doors – your use of the frosted glass design is sleek and unexpected treatment for the end of a hallway. What a fun project.
