Week 5 of the One Room Challenge is here!!! It has been a whrilwind, and I’m so close to finishing, I can almost taste it. Okay, so I’m a tad late with my week 5 update, but I did have a crazy busy week last week and I’m glad this closet door makeover project is finally complete.
Thank you again to Linda from Calling it Home for hosting this amazing bi-annual challenge. Please check out some of the 200+ rooms that are being transformed in the One Room Challenge by other bloggers.
Here’s what my daughter’s closet door looked like after Week 1 of this project. It’s a raised closet, which makes it kind of fun, but I felt like the plain white door looked very odd next to the pretty trellis wallpaper.
To try to make the closet door look like it blended a bit more, I decided to paint it using the same mint colour that’s in the wallpaper. Yawn…. it just wasn’t doing it for me.
So, how about adding some trim? I picked up 3 six foot pieces of MDF at $3 each and they ended up being just enough for what I needed. I started off with the side pieces, while making sure I could still open the bi-fold closet door.
After the long edges were completed, I measured and cut to size the slats that would form the square pattern on the doors. I tacked them in place using wood glue and my nail gun. #besttoolever
My MDF boards were pre-primed, but were looking a bit yucky. After I filled in all the gaps and tiny holes using caulking, I painted all the trim in the same colour as the walls. I had some leftover paint, so this was a no-brainer.
The total cost of this project was $9.00 since I used paint I had on hand.
I can’t wait to show you the whole room reveal, which is scheduled for this coming Wednesday! So fun, right? If you want to check out my progress on my daughter’s whole room, you can see it all come together over the past 4 weeks:
