DIY Faux French Door

When remodeling my bedroom, I decided a simple makeover was exactly what the closet door needed. A little primer, paint, and trim was all it needed to get a totally different look! I love how it turned out, and can't wait to show you exactly what I did!

Here's how my closet door started. This side of the room really needed some color, so I was exited to give it a different look!

I started by removing the door, and priming it with Zinsser Primer.

Then I painted the the frame of the door blue and the inside portion the same cream color of the walls of the room.

I glued trim to the center of the door, placing books on top of the trim to keep everything in place while the glue dried.

Once the glue was dry, I caulked any gaps between the trim and the doorframe, then touched up the paint.

Then the door was done! I love how it turned out, and I really love the splash of color it adds to this side of the room! For more information and photos, check out the full blog!
