And pantry doors too. They're both side by side in my kitchen, and they both have sliding wooden doors that are horrible looking, and falling off the tracks. I'm trying to decide if I should get new doors at tax time, or I if I should get nice looking curtains, and curtain rods. The only thing with the new doors is I can't find any for not that expensive, and the only thing with the curtains is I am afraid it will look trashy. Idk what do y'all think?

 Barn door? I see them on Pinterest all the time and you can make them pretty inexpensively.

Paint. I have some wooden doors too that I stained but they didn't turn out as nice as I'd like. Painting a nice color will keep you from having to spend money buying new ones and the paint will add 'accent'. That's what I would do anyways. :D

Yeah, and I could probably buy new tracks huh? That would be better than spending out the butt lol.

Yes, ma'am. Whereever you can save money but get rid of the 'ugliness'. You don't have to spend out the butt cheeks to make your home pretty. :D
