Hammer Nailheads

Line up the pointed ends of the tacks with the edges of the triangles and attach them to the door using the nylon-tipped hammer. To conceal the raw edges of vinyl and staples, keep the heads of the tacks side by side. As you approach intersections, evenly disburse excess space between the last few tacks in the row.

Tip: After my first few rows, I found it much easier to tack vertical, horizontal, and diagonal rows in that order. Leave the doorknob area clear of tacks until it’s installed.

Install Doorknob and Hinges

Carefully cut away the vinyl from the doorknob holes using the utility knife and install the doorknob. Continue hammering tacks until they meet the doorknob.

Clear vinyl from the hinge locations, leaving 1/8 inch of excess vinyl to tuck beneath the hinge plate and conceal the wood. When the hinges and knob are installed, hang the door and enjoy!
