I made an epic discovery inside my mid century modern home's doors while renovating – people are very jealous of my find | The Sun

A HOMEOWNER has left others envious after sharing the epic discovery she made while renovating her home which was built in 1958.

Krys Melo (@melodramarama) said she decided to take a closer look at the case opening in the walls of her house after they caught her attention.

She shared her suspicions on TikTok over five years after she first moved into her Palm Springs home.

The DIY enthusiast zoomed the camera into the wall as she spotted something that many people would have missed after getting settled in their house.

The text over the video read: “I’ve been suspicious about this case opening in the wall and I think I found pocket doors.

“Yay! It works!” she wrote after unveiling the doors.

Krys found a satin bronze paint that matched the original doorknobs to give vintage handles which she found online a new lease of life. 

“Let’s see what this side is hiding, there’s the twin!” she continued.

Her partner demonstrated how both sides of the door slid apart as the couple celebrated their find. 

“Midcentury restoration discoveries,” Krys captioned the post.

She added the hashtags #midcenturymodern, #homerenovation, #restoration, and #oldhouse.

Viewers were amazed by Krys’s discovery and admitted they would love to have pocket doors in their own houses.

Pocket doors are handy for saving both floor and wall space. They are placed on a track which allows them to disappear into the wall when slid open.

One person wrote: “My grandma’s old house used to have these, I absolutely loved them.”

Another commented: “I adore pocket doors. Gimme all pocket doors and I’d be happy. So much more functional space! Jelly.” 

A third said: “I live in a place with pocket doors they’re pretty but if they go off track or break it’s hell to fix them.”

A fourth penned: “It really doesn’t get more convenient than pocket doors. I don’t understand why anyone wouldn’t want them.”

Another added: “Not me running around my house to see if I have those kinda neat doors!! Lol.” 

A TikTok user chimed in: “I wish I had pocket doors.”
