  1. Owow that panel molding’s done wonders for those dub doors- definitely something I’d even do for sliding closet doors, provided I select a low-profile molding…pinning as we speak! Thx for the inspiration!

    Peace. Love. LOL!

  2. I can’t even express in words how thankful I am to be featured! I was shocked to see my house when I was getting caught up on my blog reading this morning! Thank you! These other projects are amazing so I am thrilled and honored to be featured with them.
