How to turn a builder basic glass shower door into an industrial style factory window shower door under $60.
I am so, so excited to finally be sharing my tutorial for my DIY Industrial Factory Window Shower Doors from our bathroom makeover. This one will blow your mind, y’all! My inbox has been flooded with some of you asking for me to spill the beans, so I’ve kept my secret until today.
- Approximately 3 cans of Rustoleum Universal Hammered Black spray paint
- Painter’s tape (I really like this brand.)
- Plastic drop cloth
- Respirator mask
- Putty knife
- 5 lengths of 1/4″ x 3/4″ x 96″ Polystyrene Lattice Moulding
- Tape measure
- Black permanent marker
- Loctite GO2 Glue
- Loctite 2 in 1 Clear Latex Window and Door Caulk
- Caulk gun
- Caulk finishing tool
*I already had the tools and tape on hand since they’re usual staples in our workshop.
Even though I had to fix my mistakes, it turned out great!
Step 6. Spray paint the 3 cut moulding pieces with the hammered black. I did these in my garage.
I used the black marker so it wouldn’t show later on the inside of the glass against the black moulding pieces.
If you make mistakes, just wipe away any permanent marker with nail polish remover.
This adhesive dries completely clear, is extremely strong, and is temperature and moisture resistant to make it durable against the humidity in a bathroom.
Step 11. I used the same process with the Loctite GO2 Glue for the horizontal pieces to place over my door markings. I used a small level again to double check them and adjust as needed before setting them in place.
(That level, by the way, is older than I am since it was handed down from my husband’s grandfather. It’s seen a lot of action, so it’s looking a bit shabby.)
Step 12. To seal any cracks behind the moulding pieces and prevent mold or mildew from settling between the polystyrene and the glass, I used clear latex caulk.
