Teen boy’s always closed closet door

Materials: Window panels

Description: Closing bifold doors is just too much trouble for a teen boy. I cut curtain panels in half to make strips. They are stapled to a 1 x 1 which is mounted above the inside of the closet. The strips are narrow enough to walk through easily, but fall right back into place to make the door ALWAYS CLOSED! The black border is chalkboard paint. And yes, those are broken drum heads hung on the wall. What can I say – teenage boy!!

    Congrats on creating a room for a teen-age boy that looks stylish yet not fussy. That room looks clever enough for a magazine.

    Does that say “Is it Holy?” above the closet?

    Nice – and as a drummer, I can appreciate the broken drum head collection, too!
