Rehabbing Dated Closet Doors?

Q: I would like to do something about my new apartment's closet doors. Any creative and inexpensive solutions that don't involve getting new doors which is definitely not an option? I'm willing to engage in plenty of DIY if necessary! Thanks!

Editor: Ana- yeah, those doors do seem a little dated. Luckily, there are lots of ways to give them some new style. If you like the mirrors, but just want less reflection, you can tape off a smaller frame to stay as a mirror, and then frost around it to create some patterns. If you want to lose the mirrors, you can glue or tack some thin lauan into the frame and paint it white to match the doors. You could also cover the mirrors with fabric panels to add some visual interest. We also recommend changing out the hardware- long metal bars on the doors will make them look more sleek than the current knobs.

Readers- any recommendations for Ana?
