New Purpose For Those Old Mirrored Closet Doors

Mirror1

Maybe you love those sliding mirrored closet doors. But, in case you don’t, and want to change them out, there’s no need to ditch them completely.

Here’s what I did with my old mirrored closet doors. The ones above have metal frames, mine have wood, so I didn’t have to remove the frames.

The idea came after removing them from the bedroom, then leaning the three doors against the dining room wall to keep them out of the way. Well, they never left. But the mirrors did get some additional trim from ornate crown molding and several coats of paint that matched the wall. You can get more information on how it’s done here.

The wall of mirrors opens up a small room, adding depth while transforming it from a fairly basic dining room to one that sparkles. And, best of all, the original doors were allowed to remain in the house for another turn at life rather than ending up in the trash.
