Why I Gave Our Entryway Closet Bifold Doors A Makeover
One of my favorite spaces in our home is our entryway – it’s the largest foyer I’ve ever had in all the homes we’ve lived in as a military family!

It’s bright and spacious with lots and lots of beautiful, bright light.
Our entryway closet is actually quite roomy too, which we really enjoy as a family of four! There is lots of rooms for our coats, shoes, scarves and all the ‘stuff’ that goes in a front closet!

One thing that’s been on my home makeover to-do list for a while, was to change the nickel closet door knobs since they have gotten quite worn.
The finish on the knobs is scratched (these are builder basic knobs that are cheap quality). Also, the wood around the door knobs has gotten gouged and rubbed because the knobs sort of slide and wiggle when we open the doors.
Selecting And Adding New Door Hardware:
So I recently replaced the closet door knobs with these inexpensive lucite and brushed brass knobs and I absolutely LOVE them! (these knobs also are available as cabinet pulls – they are stunning and I’m thinking of adding them to our kitchen cabinets!)
Since I have other brass and gold elements in my foyer decor, like the marble and brass lamps , I selected this brass and lucite finish.
Lucite is a big trend right now and I love it! It’s so timeless, elegant and chic!
When selecting the color of your door and cabinet hardware make sure it coordinates and flows with other things in the space!

I love how the brushed brass finish also looks with my gray entryway wall paint color!
Paint Colors In My Home
I also added large washers, that I scrounged from hubby’s supplies in our garage. I spray painted the washers with this white satin spray paint, to cover up the marks on the wood and to add a decorative backplate element to the knobs.
Let me assure you that this is a quick and easy DIY home improvement project that gives big results that you can enjoy immediately! I just love those kinds of DIY decor projects, don’t you??
