Fabric Covered Wardrobe Doors



I loathe our mirrored wardrobe doors.  

I know mirrors can make a small room look larger, but they are so 80's!!!
 

I had been tossing around a number of ideas including spray frosting, wallpaper, Modge Podging, painting, and covering them in fabric.  The latter was the path I ventured down, and I'm so happy I did.
I knew I would need a fair amount of material and Lincraft just happened to have 50% off fabric, so I chose an economical white poly cotton.  And at 50% off I got a massive 10 metres for only $25!  This was halved and then sewn together along one side to create the right width.

I had some old plywood left over from replacing the bottom of some drawers, so I measured the bottom and top of the wardrobe doors, then cut out strips of plywood.


I sewed openings in both endings of my fabric to place the wood strips through,


then evenly gathered the fabric on the wooden strip.
I got out my good old hot glue gun and attached the fabric rod ends to the top and bottom of the mirror, and then along the sides as well.

I love the way it softens the room and we are not continually looking at ourselves anymore! Hehe. 

And if you were observant, yes we did get a new bed. ;)
