This picture has been up on my computer screen all week. I really love this idea and may have the perfect place to try it out.
Our basement is 'sort of' finished...drywall and carpeting mostly but there is a lot that could be done (like getting rid of the enormous 1990's bar). There is even a tiny bathroom...so tiny that the door rubs up against the toilet when you enter. I can't help but think this sliding door option might just solve that dilemma and possible bring a bit of style to the future 'kid cave'
