How can I fix my closet doors that don't fit?



I need to bring my closet door opening from 58” to 48”. Some idiot measured wrong and already purchased doors off market place. So I can’t take them back. We are selling and on a tight budget with more things we have to do. How do I close this off without the whole drywall thing and make it look nice and presentable. Thanks!!

    Make two long boxed panels with 2X4 s and a flat panel between and fasten to each side of the opening making sure to allow for the door in between. It will look like the door has a frame on both sides. Paint or stain to match the doors or the wall.
