Good Questions: How to Deal with These Mirrored Closet Doors?

Dear AT,

We just moved into an apartment with a lot of stylistic and organizational problems. The major one right now is these closet doors (see image). I'm not sure who thought this many mirrors in the bedroom were a good idea, but they freak us out. (The parallel to "mirrors on the ceiling" comes to mind.) We don't intend to stay in this apartment longterm, so we're looking for a bit of a "quick fix" (The landlord does not want the doors altered in any way that cannot be easily undone.) We're also on a bit of a budget so are hoping for a solution that won't break the bank. S.O.S!

Dear Lisbet,

One inexpensive DIY option would be to do something similar to our drop cloth curtains that we hung (from ceiling to floor) to replace ugly bi-fold closet doors in our home office. They are easy to install, you can take them down when you move, and use the drop cloths for repainting your next place (?!).

Anyone else have some good ideas and solutions?
