Not Your Grandma’s Door – How to Make Your Doors Unique

If you are doing a home renovation, or you just want to make a change to one room, you can transform the personality of a place by changing the door. You don’t have to call Dawson Doors New York for all of these. Take a chance and try some do-it-yourself ideas.

Barn Doors

Sliding barn doors are a recent trend, and they can do wonders for a room. Use them for entry doors, bathroom doors, or over cabinets or open shelving to hide the less tidy sections.

Hidden Doors

Just like in your favorite mystery, you can have your own secret door. Your door can masquerade as a bookshelf by turning a typically framed doorway into the nook for a hinged bookcase. What could be cooler than that? 

Dutch Doors

Dutch doors are a great idea if you have kids or dogs. If you want to limit access to a room but still have visibility, keeping the bottom closed and the top open would work well. You can even create your own from a full door. You can choose a rustic style or a more finished one, depending on your taste.

Brightly Painted Doors

Release your inner Picasso or Pollock by making your door a work of art. You can do a free-form with multiple colors or recreate a masterpiece. If that sounds too ambitious, pick some unexpected colors like neons, glow-in-the-dark or even chalkboard paint. Find unexpected objects to trim it like bottle caps, faux jewels or fabric trim. 

Reimagined Doors

If you have a farmhouse style, a fun replacement for a pantry door is a vintage screen door. If you have a panel door, try removing the panel and replacing it with glass. Don’t want it to be completely transparent? Just apply some frosted window film to one side.

With a little imagination, some time and a little elbow grease, you can completely change the look of a room. Using an unexpected door can be a fun and exciting way to update your home.

 

Delicious Foods At Mango Thai

Salad

My first time dining at Mango Thai Cuisine in Plano (TX) yesterday did not disappoint. The restaurant was located on West Park Blvd. and Preston Road. My girl friends ate lunch here after shopping.

It was a small place but it had a neat setting inside. The crew were looking sharp in their simple uniform. They were attentive and the service was fast.

The food selection is impressive. I am not that familiar with Thai foods so I just ordered something that I used to get whenever I eat at an Asian restaurant–chicken curry. I ordered Yellow Curry with Chicken. My friend R had Green Curry with Chicken while K ordered Lard and rice and extra Spring Rolls. They will prepare the food according to the spice level preferred. I told the server to make my Chicken Curry in spice level Mild.

Their lunch special is very affordable. And Happy Hours start at 2:00 P.M..

Lots of wine and drinks selection.

In-Store Visit Not Impressed

My girl friends and I went to Plano yesterday to check Nordstrom Rack located on Preston Road. We have been wanting to visit the place. We planned the trip since Monday but some important matter arose. Anyway, we finally get to the store. We looked around and checked their apparel, shoes, accessories, and cosmetics for sale. Their ad says they sell discounted prices on the merchandise on clearance. But most of the items on clearance are still pricey. I wasn’t impressed. The location is great but inside the store, to me, is not quite organized.

You have to spend a lot of time browsing each aisle or department if you want to find the cheap merchandise you want.
