Mirrored Closet Door Makeover

2 Materials
Are you tired of builder grade closet doors? I was. We have sliding mirrored closet doors in my daughter's room that I wanted to do something with. I didn't want to remove them all together, because we really use those mirrors. So I figured out a way to upgrade them.
After seeing an inspiration picture of very detailed mirrored doors online, I decided that I would give these an upgrade with some trim. My first attempt was buying thin molding from Home Depot and attempting this pattern myself. I soon realized I am not actually a carpenter. To make the pattern I was after, it would take a lot of very precise cuts, most of them angled. Then I remembered a website called MyOverlays.com. I found a similar pattern, and they helped me customize it to fit my existing doors. It took less than 30 minutes to install these!
They are very thin laminate, so it does not interfere with the doors opening and closing at all.
It really gave the whole room an upgrade!

    I liked the look and went to overlays website but have no idea of what is involved other than a lot of money? There are no 'How to videos". What are you buying vinyl, wood, hard plastic. how do you affix it to your project. How do you paint it etc.
