From Dark Doors to Light Doors With Paper.
The doors are all a bit battered up so sanding them down and paint would not help a lot.
I decided to put wallpaper on it.

I am inspired! I manage/managed a property for my parents that has damaged doors. To add insult to my injury, the tenant there is living rent-free because of this and faulty carpet(s). Yes, her days are numbered. Hey, let me do a carpet hack for all of you soon?!

Don't tell me your tenant is living there for free because of the damaged doors and some carpets? how can that be possible? Will he or she pay rent if the doors are repared? I don't think so. My brother has an apartement with a tenant who didn't pay. After 2 years, a laywer and the police he finally got her out. The apartement is a mess : everything is damaged and the bathroom is almost black with moist. There were pot and pans not washed for a whole year, full bin bags everywere : the stench!
He said to me that, next time, he will just wait until they leave for a moment, go in there and change the locks. All personnel belongings will go in a storage which he will pay for 1 month. If you don't pay for something, you can't take it home with you, right? Same thing with rent : if you don't pay for it, you can't get to live there. Get them out, damaged doors can't be the reason why they are not paying.
Wondering what width you cut for the sides and horizontal pieces? Does is look better to do it this way than just covering the whole door with the whole piece of wallpaper?
