Favorite Element: That it was DIY, strengthened my character, and is a space saver Today, I offer, with outstretched arms, a tour of my bathroom door. I have been building it for a number of weeks and it's finally up and--literally--running, along the wall outside my firstname.lastname@example.org The inside of the sandwich is sewing trim ribbon hand sewn onto white netting fabric--the stuff that was used to make a 1950's poodle skirt's crinoline. The two plexis (with frosted side out) are held together with 'sex screws' and the entire ensemble hangs on sliders that run across a track attached to my ceiling with some serious anchors. There are rubber stops at each end to prevent over-enthused sliding action. There are many steps to this ordeal, but if you have the right tools and a vision, it really isn't all that difficult. I rejoice daily in the fact that the door provides visual privacy, retains heat inside the bathroom, and hasn't yet fallen down. Some future efforts include adding the doorway threshold and the trim along the door frame. In all, it fulfilled my desire to create art towards functional ends, and upped my drilling skills by 125%.
