DIY Mirrored Closet Door Makeover

DIY Mirrored Closet Door Makeover
Submitted By The Savvy Stylist 

 For the past 3 years, our master closet doors have been on my To-Do list for our condo.  The doors were half louvered, half solid, and had blah hardware.  I had called a few local places and searched the web to find doors to replace them.  Apparently the door sizes were not in stock anywhere and would have had to be custom made - which we all know what that means!  I was quoted $300...PER DOOR!!!  Uhhh, no thanks!

So I started thinking what I could do with the existing doors.
Here they are BEFORE the makeover:

I love anything mirrored...and it IS a closet!  That's it!  I will have mirror cut to pop in the 'panels'!  So I measured the panels multiple times - I even had to Google 'how to read a tape measure' because I had never used half the marks on there!  I called a few local mirror and glass companies for quotes and let's just say this little project cost me WAY less than I would have had to pay to replace just ONE door...plus, it looks way better!

I used mirror mastic to adhere the 1/8" mirror to the doors.  On my first door, I took it off the hinges to apply the mirror...but then I realized that it was unnecessary.

Fast forward 8 pieces of mirror later, I let the glue dry overnight with tape to make sure the mirror didn't fall out (don't know how much that painters tape would have really helped though)!  :)  I also updated the hardware.

Even though the mirror was a good fit, I also decided to caulk the edges of the mirror (below).  After all the caulking was done, I used a razor blade to scrape off the excess on the mirror (which I had not scraped yet in photo below).

And here is the final result!

I love this look SO much better!  The final cost was about $200 and it took me only a couple of days - waiting for glue and caulking to dry.  Totally worth it!

Thanks ladies!
Becca, I can't remember the name of the company right now, but I got them from a local glass shop here in Los Angeles. Just google mirror and glass around you and I'm sure a few options will pop up. Good luck and send pictures when it's finished! :)
