How to Make Your Own Threshold Piece for Wood Flooring (from Leftovers!!)
Guys. I have something really really embarrassing for show and tell today. You know those bad things in your life (and house!) that you just sort of stop seeing? They just keep getting overlooked, or they are on that list of stuff that you know you need to do but haven’t?
Yes. I have a lot of those. This one has been at the top of that list since we moved into our house almost 7 years ago!!!
Its a gutter that catches alllll the treasures. Hey! Its the super glue lid I’ve been looking for!!
Before you judge me too hard, let me explain.
Backstory: When we moved into our house it was literally by the skin of our teeth. We replaced the carpeting with wood (this wood to be exact) that had been discontinued. When we bought it they didn’t have threshold pieces available so we just didn’t get them (because we thought we’d color match the stain and add something else). That never happened. Fast forward to a few months ago when we bought the same flooring that after 5 years wasn’t discontinued anymore. Yay!! We used it in the baby’s room and like a fool I completely overlooked ordering threshold pieces. GAH!!! But then, because we’ lived with this situation for so long and were immune to it, I quickly forgot about it. Until last week.
Court was apparently massively motivated to get the gutter of crap out of our lives and started messing around on the table saw.
He came up with a brilliant way to DIY your own threshold piece. I kissed him on the mouth I was so happy about it, because I know that so many of you are in the same situation! Pieces don’t match, they’re too expensive, they aren’t available, etc. This kills all of those problems in like 3 seconds.
We even made a little video showing you just how easy it is!
The glue that we put down to secure it is legit, seriously use gloves, don’t get it on your hands.
Hooray for not living like animals!!!
