I have hated the color of our bedroom for awhile so the first step was paint! We went from a drab khaki to a light soothing grey
(Benjamin Moore Wish)
Here are our ugly closet doors
After I removed the doors I added a fresh coat of white paint
Then I sprayed all the door hardware black to match the rest of the black hardware on our furniture
I measure the mirror and cut all my trim pieces and painted them.
Then I realized I cut all my trim pieces exactly 1 inch too short.
I went back to Home Depot, bought more trim pieces, meausred about 50 times, recut and repainted.
That was fun.
I had two 1/8 inch pieces of glass cut to fit the door and assembled them in my
workshop guest room
One of these days I'll have a work space...
After I attached the mirror to the door with mirror mastic and the trim pieces with liquid nails and some small finishing nails I let them sit for about a day before hanging them back up.
I made a few more changes as well and TADA!!!!
I removed our old non matching (ugly) lamps and replaced them with matching wall mounted sconces
I LOVE the mirros on the closet doors!
Please ignore the plethora of hats collected on our dresser. We're getting ready for a little vacation and this is the start of the packing!
I can't believe how much bigger our room feels just by adding a few mirrors! We only have one window in our bedroom and this bounces so much more light around the room!
Yes, the doors are crooked. When I have the time and energy I will fix this, until then I'll go on cursing the prior owner who did everything half ass in this house thus creating more work for me!
I added some art with a little sentimental meaning. The large frame is an old map of the virgin island which we picked up on our honeymoon.
The smaller frames I painted white and antiqued and I found the nautical prints here on Etsy.
Grey dog loves the new room too!
I have to say I am very pleased with how it turned out! It actually feels like a little retreat space now and I love being in there. It's amazing what a little paint and a few simple changes can do to transform a space.
Onto the next project!!!
