How to Add Trim to Plain Bifold Doors

The DIY Playbook
by The DIY Playbook
We had some ugly bifold doors in our main living room, and I was so eager to jazz them up and make them look a heck of a lot better...on a budget!
All it took was some wood, paint, and a little bit of time to truly upgrade these doors.
Here's how they look now...
I started with a plain wood bi-fold door and I painted it a bright white. I then added some inexpensive wood trim in a contemporary pattern.
With the wood up, it was time to prime and paint!
Here's how they look now with their sleek black handles. We are obsessed and can't get over how this simple DIY project completely changed this space.
