Divide your space by using french doors as room dividers….

Yesterday we finally did the one project I’ve been dreaming about doing!
I found two french doors with the same size and height windows at the Restore and envisioned them as room dividers!
I wanted something to make the rooms more useable and add some architectural interest.
 The rooms are large, but having the opening between the kitchen and the living area so big really limits furniture placement in both rooms.
Sometimes I don’t think “open concept” always works.

 My vision is the doors add a little “wall space” but are light and airy and still feel open.

   and now there’s a space to place  a chair or even a table.

 I feel like every project is half finished. I’ll be so glad when it comes together at the end! You can see other projects we’ve been working on here.

I’ll take a break over there this weekend because I’ll be at the Kane County Flea Market, but then we’ll be right back at it next week!

  4. Hi Jennifer
    I have two doors to do exactly what you’ve done. I’m still not sure how to securely hang them. As I was searching for ideas, & how to’s. I cam across your blog. Could you possibly indulge how you hung them? I love the way you finished them with molding. Just beautiful
    Thank you

    1. HI Corrine,
      My contractor did it, so I am not a 100% sure, but I know they were screwed into the supporting structures and floor and then after framed them in with 2 x 2’s and trimmed them out so they didn’t move at all. The two doors are held together with metal ties and we painted over them. I hope this helps?
