My bi-fold pantry door is an eyesore. It has a fake woodgrain and blocks the left side of the shelves when it’s opened. But it’s an unusual size, so finding an off-the-shelf or salvage replacement has been impossible. I thought about converting it à la Jason’s closet-door hack, but then I stumbled upon Ashley’s attractive solution. While she didn’t have a bi-fold to begin with, her door replacement would work for just about any ugly door, including mine.

Ashley and her husband are DIY pros, as documented on Domestic Imperfection. Their entire dining area got a gorgeous makeover, complete with paneling, drapes, and a seriously cute chalkboard. And the pantry screen door? Perfection!

Ashley didn’t include specific directions on her post about the project, but it seems simple enough that anyone with basic carpentry skills could figure it out. Since my pantry isn’t as tidy as hers, I might make a few tweaks (fabric instead of a screen?), but I just love her inventive solution.

Great job Ashley! (Can you please make one for me?)
