Unique Closet Hardware

A few years ago, we upgraded our master bathroom which included replacing the bi-fold closet doors with curtain panels.

I finally got around to sewing on these Chinese frogs the other day. A Chinese frog is an ornamental braiding for fastening the front of a garment that consists of a button and a loop through which it passes.

The usual purpose of frogs is to provide a closure for a garment while decorating it at the same time.

I've actually had them safety pinned on for the longest time and finally got around to properly attaching them!

 It really makes such a difference.

We used to leave the curtains open all the time but now it feels so good to "button them up"!

Have any of you replaced your closet doors with curtain panels?

Yes but it is no longer a closet. I put a panel in the playroom reading nook and the kiddos love to close it like a tent. Love love your closure, such wonderful taste and style, Miss Terri!! xo Kathysue

They would likely still be pinned on around here. Nice shelving by the way.

I love the idea of curtains instead of a door Terri. The frog is the finishing touch. Your husbands side of the closet is very organized, ahem, did you forgot to show us your side?
Have a delightful week
