Hi Mary, glad you liked the project. You scored on your bifold doors, that was a great price! Now you need to haul them out and get busy 🙂 Thanks so much for your visit.
OH I had to laugh. That is my exact thought process ehen I’m out thrifting. Such struggles go on internally I have some bifold doors I scored an estate sale for $ 4 but I have not attempted them in a project yet. It’s on my to do list. Thanks for sharing.
Slam a bifold door too many times and you can split the wood where the top and bottom anchor and pivot pins sit. Then the door either sags or falls out of the track. You can try gluing and clamping the wood, but the wood can split again in a different spot. Or you can fix the problem permanently by installing corner braces. Buy a corner brace kit at a home center or from . Take the old anchor/pivot pins to the store to match up to new ones.Start by marking the anchor pin hole location on the new brace (Photo 1). Then finish the corner brace installation (Photo 2) and install the door.
