Interior Door Makeover - How to add Character
DiY is not cheap, however, there are many ways to make it less expensive. Doing an interior door makeover adds character to your existing simple door and is a great way to save on some money.
There are many ways you can update your old doors.
Personally, I was really wanting new doors, but it was just not in our budget. Here is how I added character to my door.
I also did this in my living room if you would like to see it on another door in a different color. Here is that link.
Materials for an Interior Door Makeover
Here is the simple door I started with . . .
Step 1 - Get Some Trim
Pick out trim that you like at the store.
I got mine at Home Depot.
Step 2 - Cut Trim
Measure the trim, how you want, and cut at a 45 degree angle.
Step 3 - Make Trim Design to Add Character
Next, you are making your design on your door.
I decided to go for three squares on the door. A taller on on top, a small one for the middle and a medium size one for the bottom.
Reference the end photo if needed.
You will use wood glue and a few nails in each piece of trim.
Make sure you are leveling off the trim.
Step 4 - Caulk
Caulk your trim and let it dry.
Then, paint your door!
This is what I ended up with.
I have used this trick to update many of my house flips.
It makes the door look a million times better and it is so cheap and easy to do.
I know you guys can do this!!
