Closet Doors Makeover

2 Materials
5 Days

I recently painted my bedroom- including painting white the stained trim around the windows. The last step was to update our sliding closet doors. We gave them a whole new look.

This is what I started with. Update needed!

The first thing we did was my hubby took down the doors for me. I then removed the circular door handles.

Then I applied this wall covering primer to the doors.

This textured wall covering was purchased online from Bed, Bath and Beyond.

It was easy enough to apply. There is adhesive on the back, it needs to be activated with water.

I made sure to line up the sheets so as not to see the seam.

The wallpaper is paintable so I brightened it even more with some white paint.

Extra touches of detail with some decorative handles and hinges added for a “barn door” type look.

Here you can see the hinges. Looking good.

Our finished product! We actually added another set of hinges to the bottom for balance. It really brightens our bedroom! Hope you like it as well!

    Looks much better. Did you just paper over the hole where the original handles were?

      A little bit. The second one came off a bit quicker. There are little nails holding the knob in (ar least mine were) so you need a way to pull them out :)
