Updating mirrored sliding closet doors

A client once hired me to revamp her master closet and dressing area, in preparation for putting her home on the market.She was a savvy homeowner who planned to invest in a few key updates in order to make her property (which was built in the early 70’s) as appealing as possible to buyers. But one feature that would NOT appeal to buyers was a set of floor-to-ceiling mirrored closet doors.I went over to Home Depot and picked up some thin trim and a miter box.When I got home and started figuring this all out, it hit me that I am actually a carpenter.In order to stage this space properly for resale, those doors had to go.Since her budget would not allow for new doors, we explored several options for dealing with outdated mirrored closet doors.Today I’m excited to share with you the mirrored closet door makeover I did in my daughter’s room.

Let your imagination be creative with door options that add character to your well-organized space. A foyer closet just off the main entrance provides adequate space for coats and jackets plus room for a few sports items at the ready for that impromptu tag football game or a quick catch between father and son. This closet features a wooden storage system and white shelves that frame the space, giving the design an eclectic look with lots of personality. Sliding doors can be installed with 2, 3 or 4 doors that can cover an opening of up to 16 feet.

We still read and reply to comments even though this post is over a year old.

(By the way, more than one year in and the doors are holding up famously.

(Moonlight White- Benjamin Moore)I spray painted the screw eyes (giggle) with some oil-rubbed bronze spray I had, and we attached one to the door frame, and one to the door.

We used a small length of the chain in between them to prevent the door from swinging open too wide…I am going to get rid of some more of those clothes though, for real.
