make do and mend (or invisible mend!)

We have a joke in our house - the invisible mend - which is actually the most visible (and probably botched) mend imaginable. Sewing up your blue shirt with a few crude stitches in orange thread, that kind of thing. (I'm not guilty obviously!)

This door has a bit more style to it than that but is still delightfully 'invisible'!
