Door comes as raw wood, so if you want it painted, you have to paint it yourself. Luckily the glass is masked with plastic. Do not paint the hinges, or they squeak and whine. The holes at the top for the roller pins were too small and had to be redrilled. The roller pin broke when I tried to insert it in the hole and had to buy a new kit. All finished, it looks nice.
I ordered these doors to replace the old sliding doors in my son’s room that were always getting stuck and only gave half the closet access needed at a time. These doors were very easy to hang with the guide rails, and I swear the room looks bigger now. My only complaint is that I hung two doors side by side to close in the middle. Since the doors are identical, I had to unscrew all of slats and window slides of the second door and flip all the pieces so that it would match the opposing door. Otherwise the dull frosted side would have been facing out. Also, there are no directions on how to remove a window slat in case it’s a little too wide for your space. I found a video online for another brand, but afterwards and an hour of frustration, I realized I had to flip around all the slats again to make it function properly-that would have been nice to have in the instructions instead of causing hours of headache. Also, the latch to hold the doors closed doesn’t work, but the doors line up together when closed and the latch is not needed. I am happy with this purchase, but the directions for removing a slat or hanging two doors side by side should have mentioned as to what needs to be done. Now that I know how to address some of the known issues, I will purchase again.
