Our Master Bathroom Sliding Door & Basin Custom Hardware

Our master bathroom has come a loooong way. Remember when it looked like this?

I don't miss those days :)

Because we wanted more space, we decided to take the standard door off of it's frame and put a sliding door in it's place. We knew we only had minimum space to work with, and we wanted to do something more modern than just the typical sliding "barn" door, so I was stoked when Basin Custom asked if I wanted to work with them for the hardware portion of our project :)

Angie was so nice to even mock up this drawing for me of what my space would look like where my hardware was going. While our custom hardware was getting made...yup, I said custom (whoohoo!) we went with white powder coated pieces rather than standard dark, we got our door jam in shape for everything to be installed.

We removed the old door jam, and simply added some new boards to the door frame, to give it a more finished look.

I know you all are aware of how obsessed we are with getting as much natural light into every space of this house as possible, so we ordered a door from Home Depot that had 5 frosted glass panels in it. Perfect for letting light radiate through, but also enough to give anyone in the bathroom the privacy they need.

The door came primed, and we liked the white finish, so we just gave it a good coat of semi-gloss white.
After that we measured our hardware, drew some guideline marks with a pencil and then drilled the holes in the door where they needed to go.

To anchor the sliding door we installed wood pieces to the outside for support, and attached the hardware onto that.

After we made sure everything was level and straight, we got to hanging our beautiful, white hardware!

Install was pretty straight forward, so that was nice - plus having our 'Handy-Dad' around sure helps. ha!

Here's what the door looks like now, all finished up!
We LOVE it! Sleek, modern, a total space saver and it really makes a big style impact in the room as well.
I love adding little touches like this around the house - they're what make it special!
