Master Bedroom Update – Mirrored French Closet Doors

How we created a vintage style, glamorous solution for our bifold
doors on our master bedroom’s his and her closets for added light
and texture.

It’s been way too long since we shared a
master bedroom update
, but when you’re trying to complete a
room makeover during the Christmas season, it’s a lot of, “Ooh!
Shiny things! Look, distractions!”

So okay… quick recap.

Once upon a time there was a master bedroom that needed a little
bit of love.

Paint (and also Christmas
decorations back in December 2017
) made things better but
Robert and I saw even more potential.

So
Paint Job #2 happened
and it was 1000% worth it…

Because it turns out that even though black
paint seems scary in theory
, it friggin’ rocks. Which brings
us to the tale of the closet doors.

We were so done with the simple hollow core closet doors that we
originally painted dark charcoal because there was an opportunity
there that this room was completely missing.

And that something was mirrored French closet doors! Ahhhhh!
They’re so good!

We used the same
glass insert French bifold door
that we installed in
our laundry room
a couple of years ago. But since we didn’t
want our clothes visible from the outside, and we wanted these
doors to reflect some light into this small-ish bedroom, we used
our antique
mirror film trick
again.

If you’re sick of seeing this stuff on our projects, I’m
sorry but also not sorry. Because it has been the perfect solution
for incorporating a little texture while adding light into dark
spaces.

Like we always do when painting
interior doors
, we brushed the glass (using our French
door painting trick
) with
masking liquid
, applied
Kilz 2 All-Purpose primer
, and painted on a coat of Benjamin
Moore Simply White semigloss like the rest of the trim in our
house.

Even though we have dark charcoal doors almost everywhere else,
we felt like a creamy white would add balance to the black walls
that we painted with
Kilz Complete Coat Rebel
in satin.

And these
glass knobs
with
antique brass backplates
were our solution to add a little
vintage style.

The
mirror film
isn’t all that functional in terms of having a
clear reflection, but we didn’t want it to be.

It’s just enough to bounce light from the two windows in this
room so that we have perfectly balanced lighting to make the room
feel cozy, but not closed in.

We still have a few finishing touches in this room that I’ll
share after Christmas, but I’m SO excited at how well it has all
come together.

And let me tell ya, with this black paint on the walls, I sleep
so much better now. It feels like a cocoon in here at night.

What do you think? Love? They’re way more glamorous and
vintage-y than the closet doors that were here before, that’s for
sure.

The inside of the closets haven’t improved much yet, but
we’ll get there. Add that one to the list of projects for
2020.
