        Changing closet doors Sign In/Join 
        posted
        Hello everyone:

        I'm a bit new to this whole DIY thing. But hey, its been fun, and they're all simple projects.

        So I just moved into a new place and my bedroom closet has 3 bypass doors that I'd like to change to 2. The problem I'm having is that everywhere I look I notice they sell the doors with frames and everything and I just need the actual doors and hanging hardware. Any advice on what the best way to find these are?

        Are there standard sizes? I'm seeing 80" but I'm guessing that's to the frame, right? Mu current doors themselves are only about 76" high.

        Thanks!

        standard size is 36 inches for doors. they are made in even sizes down to 18 inches. not as many options for pass doors for closets.

        there are bifold doors in solid wood (OK, scuzwood) with veneering in the 24-30-36 sizes, which is what we replaced all the closet doors in our house with. they come with hinges and a top track hardware set. pine, oak, cherry veneers common, some models have full or top louvers. the millwork desk at a real lumberyard or a large home center can fix you up.


        sig: if this is a new economy, how come they still want my old-fashioned money?

        My day has now been enriched by these spammy words of wisdom.

        And mine as well.

        Perhaps I've been viewing these unwanted intruders in the wrong light. They do in fact provide amusement, especially the mangled attempts to communicate in a language to which they're not native and don't seem to understand.

        I think these are some of my favorites, from the Mobile Tracking Services post in General Hobbies. (And kudos to the spammer for such a creative interpretation of "hobbies"!)

        "When you see an internet site in a browser you mechanically gives info with all the website including biscuits your internet protocol number and also additional typical apparatus tips."

        I'm still trying to figure out how I can operate "mechanically". Should I be a Borg? And should I be providing "biscuit" refreshments - I thought cookies were the cyber"food" of choice. Maybe the next spammer will decide on tea and crumpets.

        But this is even better:

        "Yet, the petition is simply a sign to all those web sites. Ie can't apply conformity together with the postulation."

        Huh????

        Now, that's profound! I can't even begin to figure out what it's supposed to mean.

        And on this thread, given the ease of "any type of renovation", why isn't dear Juana out working as a renovator instead of being a spammer?

        I am, however, glad to be reassured of the ease of all the tasks which I've found daunting. Her/his/its words will be of comfort when I start tearing down walls. But of course, that's "not a problem" in her/his expert opinion.

        Most certainly, these spammers are providing some mental challenges for me.

        Is "postulation" even legal in the United States?

        what happens in Vegas, stays with you for years even with the best medical help. that is what happens when "le can't apply conformity together."

        no wonder The Greeking Generator is off the Interwebs thingie. all the spammers stole its code.
