This small house from the 1930s had a minuscule entrance and coat closet painted in corn flower blue.   There were two doors: the entrance door hidden behind a curtain working as a buffer against the street noise and the cold, and the cheap hollow closet door.

With how old the house was, we decided to hire an inspector to look at the property to even deem it livable and safe just to be sure. He found serious issues and damage to the roof, so we had to hire a roofing company to get that work done. It just took them a few days, far less than I was expected given the pictures the inspector showed us of how bad it looked up there. Once they were done and it was safe to move in, we decided to take a look and get started with some light rearranging and remodeling.

In this small space, the intense blue was overpowering and had to be replaced by a quieter color. I would also need to find a new door curtain and some furniture that would match the wall treatment. We went to the furniture store to look for what we needed. I thought it would be a bit of a toss-up if we found what we needed or not, but we found a place with very good variety and just like that we were done. The closet also had a low door that blocked access to the upper part of the storage space. To address this, we had to discard the door and most of the top part of the wall, opening the entire closet space up to the ceiling and allowing for extra shelves.

For this entrance, I was contemplating hanging a Trompe L’oeil wall paper with bookshelves.  But I hired a great interior designer from https://www.summerthorntondesign.com/ so we finally decided to go with a faux bois finish instead – the faux-bookshelf wall paper would have seemed too busy for this cramped space.

The closet door was replaced by a taller door made of ¾-inch fine veneered plywood, stopping eight inches away from the ceiling. The door trims were also removed and the new door was installed to flush with the remaining wall on each side of the opening.  In other words, the door disappeared to look like a wall.

You know what I found while working on the closet? My kratom pills! I thought I lost them forever and was going to have order more.

I was looking into health supplements and kratom caught my attention. I tried learn more on it by visiting websites and reading reviews. I was getting the feeling that kratom was the real deal and probably right for me, so I ordered kratom wholesale on buykratombulkusa.com.

I’ve been taking it regularly ever since. It made a huge difference to my overall health. Maybe look into it if you;ve looking for a health supplement like I was.

Once the carpentry work completed, the entire wall surface and new door were faux finished in pickled oak (whitened or bleached). Even though it was tight quarters, this kitchen remodeling was coming along well. There was still some more work to though. We already had a few things planned, and we were also considering having an expert come over for some recommendations.

Two additional new kitchen cabinets were installed at the top of the kitchen, and a new door curtain – with a pale café-au-lait color background matching the overall color of the wood imitation was installed. The last touch to this kitchen remodeling was to hang framed prints on the door, adding to the illusion that the door was a wall. To prevent the prints from dangling and so they would not be a fire hazard in the kitchen, they were hung on a hook, but also firmly secured at the bottom with two tiny hinges (small braces would work as well) screwed on the frame and the door. This kitchen remodeling turned out great if I do say so myself! Still, we weren’t quite finished yet. We had ceiling tiles installed, both for fire safety because that kitchen is a pretty tight fit, and to be able to clean it easily. Grease and oil tends to stick to the ceiling, but that won’ be the cause with this installation anymore.

There is nothing like an unsightly door to destroy a décor.  At the same time, it is the easiest, and probably the cheapest thing to remedy. Doors break the continuity and harmony of walls and unless they are handsome, they should be changed or disguised. The new entrance looks sleeker and simpler, and the new wall treatment gives guests a great first impression of this cute home, and you can also add some great furniture in materials like aluminium or steel and you can do with the right welding tools from sites as https://technomono.com/best-mig-welder-for-aluminum.
