My jaw dropped when I first saw this gorgeous and simple closet door update on the One Kings Lane blog. I love projects like this one that look expensive and complicated, but are actually easy to execute and are super affordable.
I’ve done a ton of closet door updates in my day. Here are my very favorite ones from my site and from around the web. What I love the most about these projects is they are simple and inexpensive and not a huge commitment, so you can get fun and funky with your choices and who cares if you’re ready for a change at some point?
I added very thin molding to this door in our old loft. I love the double square pattern and the bright pop of color!
In my first story for Domino
, I added 30 pieces of mirror to these painted IKEA Pax armoires, dentil trim moulding and gold pulls. I think the mirror inside helps amp things up, too!
Here’s another wallpaper idea – this one’s from House Beautiful
. I love the bold pattern. Wouldn’t something like this be great in a kids room? It’s a great way to add wallpaper without breaking the bank. You’d only need one roll to do a closet door like this one.
Another great idea for a kids space – simply paint the closet doors
with chalkboard paint. Make sure to use a foam brush or roller so there are no brush marks!
I decoupaged some pretty floral fabric on inexpensive, flat bi-fold closet doors and I made a folding screen
, but obviously the same idea works when using them as closet doors. This can be a really inexpensive way to get the wallpapered look. And – bonus! – the finish is wipeable! Great for a play room!
I love the idea of adding nail head to a flat door for pattern and texture, the way Ashley Hicks
And here’s another favorite. This one
would be a ton of work to DIY, but it’s such a luxe look!
I’ve done some experimenting with glass to look like antique mirror (here’s
my favorite version of that project). I love how the antiqued mirror looks on closet doors! These
I love the pattern and hardware used on these doors from Driven By Decor
! The squared off pattern is so Palm Springs!
uses O’Verlays and grasscloth wallpaper. Another renter-friendly approach!
I added wooden rounds from the hardware store and chunky moulding to our studio closet doors
. I still love them and the glossy Gentlemen’s Gray color.
And if you’re not up for a lot of work, just paint your closet doors black and switch out the hardware. I pulled these off of an old Draper chest. I love how they look in our guest bedroom
I’d love to see some of your closet door projects! What am I missing here?
