Don't get me wrong, I love the look of my Artist Bifold door; it's beautifully made, nicely stained glass inserts, easy to install and looks fantastic. Having said this, however, the product is a pain to stain because it's constructed of pinewood. Perhaps sanding the pine to a smooth finish would have caused the wood to accept staining easier, more evenly, for a more polished appearance. Nevertheless, I didn't sand it because that is just too much pre-work (sanding and staining) to install a new door that cost more money, imho, than it is worth for a pinewood product. I would have no problem paying high end price for an oak product.
I would suggest that Overstock.com and/or the manufacturer of Artist Bifold Door provide information on the type of wood that the manufacturer used to construct its Artist Bifold Door. The fact that this information is blatantly missing from the Artist Bifold Door's description shouts to me that the manufacturer is aware that no one would pay upward of $xx (including shipping) for an 80'x30' pinewood non-sanded bifold door.
I ordered the 36" door to finish off my master bathroom. It is very pretty, but is too unstable with just a top track. It can be stained or painted, since there are no knots and the grain is nice if you like quarter sawed oak. My bathroom is contemporary, so I plan on painting it a medium brown to show off the art glass. I also will be converting the door to two hinged doors, which is more appropriate for the 36" size. They are not as thick as standard doors, so narrow hinges are needed, as well as additional door knobs. If this conversion wasn't necessary, I would have given the doors a 5 star rating.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Panels are well constructed, but would be more stable with a bottom track
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Accurate.
These doors are beautiful and look stunning when installed! I have 2 sets of them side by side in my kitchen and they make my kitchen just pop! Thinking of buying another for my pantry, which has plain blah old beat up wood bifolds in them. The wood is unfinished so you can paint or stain, whatever and they are solid wood and well made. I coudn't be happier with any other door!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The colors are accurate, but more vibrant than in the pics.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very nicely made - they look far more expensive than they are

hello. I would like to know if 'Artist bifoold door' whose dimensions are 30x80.5" will actually fit into that size opening or if it needs more clearance, and if so, what size does it need? Thank you!ftcgirl on Feb 19, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for contacting us,our dimensions are based on finished opening sizes. The 30”x80.5” Artist will fit a finished opening size 30” wide by 80.5” tall. The actual door will not measure that size. We adjust for clearance when manufacturing the door. This door can be mounted on either the left or right side of your opening. Please let me know if you have any further question.overstockcustomercare1 on Feb 25, 2013

Is the stained glass "real" as in copper foil or came betwee colors or is some of it just painted on? Is it the same quality on back side also? Thanksdthues on Jan 15, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
It is “real” stained glass. It is not painted on. The pattern does show through on the back side, but it is not the same quality. I hope this helps. overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 17, 2013
