Change the Looks of Your IKEA PAX Wardrobe
Hi everyone . after 11 years, I was fed up with my wardrobe. I didn't wanna buy a new one 'cause it still has its purpose.it is very practical but I didn't like that you could see my clothes through the glass sliding doors. Painting the glass wasn't an option. changing the doors expensive ... so I used some solar window film for cars. Cheap and very easy to use.
first I cleaned the sliding doors with some hot water mixed with white vinegar and dish washing soap. No worries if they aren't dry . you need to spray them with water to stick the solar film.
In the box I bought, I got a tiny cutter knife and a plastic ruler to stick the film and get the air bubbles out
spray a large amount of water on the glass
measure the glass but cut out a little bigger .It makes it easier to place. especially when you're doing it on your own like I did. take the protective film of the black sticky part.
start spreading the film over the glass using the plastic ruler. push out the air bubbles. water will come out . when you are okay with the result, cut the edges using the ruler.
5 more to go. I already like it. fancy !
all done. it gives a shiny, mirror effect. I like the result and it only cost me about $6,8
