Master Bedroom Closet Door Re-do Project

A while back, I used some photos of my friend Brooke’s master bedroom in an article I wrote for

I adore the wall of windows over there on the far side of the room, and how they allow the view to just keep going and going!

With hopes of creating a slightly brighter, more “extended view” in our own master bedroom, we started a little project today that might just do the trick!

You remember the wall of closet doors on the far side of our room, right?

The ones that have just sorta been hanging there- unfinished, unpainted, and sporting puny little knobs and brass hinges covered in primer?

Well, today, we broke out the “Moonlight White” paint…

…and while Kev painted both of his doors, I painted both of mine.

Well, we actually just painted the part outside of the paneled area on each of the doors. We covered the middle parts of them with this stuff…

(Make sure you get the one that says MIRROR ADHESIVE if you wanna try this at home!)

Then, we smushed a big ol’ sheet of mirror into place on the front side of each of them…

(Each mirror was $40 and we had them cut at a local glass cutting shop. Pardon the unfinished baseboards.)

We made sure they were centered on each door by checking their position with a ruler right after we laid them down…

Once all the mirrors are securely glued into place (3 days), we’ll head back to the store to pick out some molding to trim them out with.
That is, after we paint it all Moonlight White, of course.

Sometimes I wonder if I’ll ever know what it feels like to have clean fingernails again. Ha!

    Absolutely fabulous. I have exactly the same closet doors, but not enough wall space for a full length mirror – this is the perfect solution!

    Quick question – did you order the mirrors from the glass shop?

    Looking forward to your reply,

    Another PW fan that’s found another great blog. I am starting this project tooo-morrohhh! Thanks for sharing your great ideas!

    I see 4″ on either side of the mirrors, what did you do for measurements at the top and bottom? Hubs thinks they can be wider but I can’t seem to decide on those. Can you tell us what you did?

    You have a beautiful bedroom – I love how you added mirrors to the closet doors! Where did you find mirrors for such a reasonable price? I know this was posted 3 years ago, but that is a great price for such a large mirror! Any tips would be appreciated! Thank you for sharing. LK

    Can you let me know how this held up over time? I want to do something like this, but my husband is convinced the mirrors will not stay put on the doors.

      Hi Elizabeth!
      They held up great while we lived there. We moved in October of 2012, but I haven’t heard anything about them falling off from the new owner. :-)
