Wow, this project will create so much space that I need! Definitely have to try it soon.

This is a very practical idea when there is no other option either due to construction constraints or a very tight budget. It is pretty trendy right now to have these sliding doors, I see mostly refurbished heavy wood barn doors or older wooden doors used, rather than this application. I could see this in a closet or as a room divider option as well. Another idea is to cover it with vinyl washable wallpaper for another fun look!

What a great space saving idea! I like the striped design on the door to make it stand out slightly.
