Bernard the Mini had a rare glitch last spring
that required going to the Mini Dealership in Richmond.
We decided to make the best of the 2.5 hour drive
and also visit a few places
looking for house "stuff."
One of our stops was Caravati's Salvage
in the old warehouse district of Richmond.
There are over 40,000 square feet jam packed with doors, windows, lights, cabinets....
Need some staircase balusters?
Or iron railings?
Even though being in Bernard the Mini
meant that we'd need to make a return trip with the truck,
we couldn't pass up this set of doors.
They were the the perfect size (tall and narrow) for our closet.
Each door is only 23" wide but they're a whopping 9.5' tall!
We decided to use "barn door" type of tracks
so that they'd be visible when open or closed.
The rollers and track will be concealed under an overhanging "valance" board.
Here they are newly hung and pulled together/closed....
And open with the closet
and its two cute little windows behind...
The tracks are super smooth operating;
the doors move with just the touch of a finger!
I'm loving seeing the details begin to come together!
4.5 weeks until moving day!!
