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 did here.
