Refinishing Gold Mirrored Closet Doors

One of the, shall we say, special aspects of our master bedroom were the gold-framed, sliding, mirrored closet doors. I knew they had to go as part of the master bedroom revamp…or did they? I conducted a great deal of research into options for replacing them and everything I found was super expensive. Closet doors are not cheap and even making our own would entail significant materials costs. So, we decided to paint them. I wasn’t sure if this would work, but it did and was a $4 fix to a pretty hideous problem, which makes this our cheapest frugal home improvement project yet! Plus, I like having full-length mirrors in the bedroom–useful for checking out sweet thrift store finds and, they make the room feel bigger.

Total cost: $4


  • Screwdriver
  • Newspaper
  • Drop cloths or old grocery bags
  • Trash/recycling bins or a sawhorse
  • Spray primer:
    • We used Rust-Oleum’s Painter’s Touch 2X Ultra Cover Flat White Primer
  • Spray paint:
    • We used Rust-Oleum’s Gloss Protective Enamel in white
    • I chose white so that the mirrors would blend in with the trim in our bedroom.
