I finished the new bathroom door today. It's a variation of a "panel" door, except it's central spar is a wavy mirror I got from IKEA and the "panel" part of the door are punched aluminum panels from Lowes.

The new door before finishing; you can see the inset area where the mirror sets so it will be flush with the wood frame of the door.

The old door & mirror

The back of the door has a central oak accent plus four standoffs for a towel rail I have yet to install.

Other cool trivia: the old door (without the mirror) weighed 26 pounds. The new door weighs 16 pounds and looks much cooler! It's nice when it comes out looking exactly like I'd planned! -)

Peter, you do great work!

The new door hardware has arrived and is installed, so here are the final door pics, front and back. I posted a separate topic that shows how the towel rails work. (Part of the idea behind installing a door with mesh panels was to allow air to circulate to help the towels dry.)

Peter, nice work.

Say, did you modify your loft bed to sleep length- instead of cross-wise too?

Cheers

KamperBob, I just left Peter and Lynn at the NOG... they're probably not home yet, so I'll answer for them. Yes, Peter changed the loft and it's fabulous. Check out this topic:
