Office Space: Papering the Closet Doors

August 24, 2010

I've been trying to find ways to organize and brighten up our office space, and considering how things were before...

Closet doors - before.

it has been no easy task. We live in an apartment, so our ability to customize and paint is really limited. But then one day the notion popped into my head to paper the closets. I always knew I was a little obsessed with paper, but plastering squares of it up onto our closet doors seemed a little questionable. Still... I couldn't get the idea out of my head.

I decided to just go for it.

Closet doors - after.
Closet doors - after.

And I really like it! A roll of scotch tape later, and the closet doors are fully papered. So far, so good, but I have to be extra careful while opening/closing. I know this is just a super temporary solution, but it really looks and feels so much better.

I'm thinking that it's time to paint that dresser white, white, white.


  1. I think it looks very cool!!! I have a paper obsession too...but I get to stingy with the paper I buy for scraping that I never want to use it. Just hang on to it. Haha, so silly.

  2. NO WAY! DON'T PAINT THE DRESSER. Its the perfect shade of my favorite color. Anyway, I vote no.

    Love the papering of the closet doors!! I just papered an old Ikea table with wrapping paper. I, too, am obsessed.


  3. It's going white! :P

    I wanna see a pic of that ikea table. I love projects like that.

    @chels - I totally get paper hording. I used to do it all the time, but it feels good to put the stuff to use, one way or another. :)

  4. Ah! These look amazing! And a white dresser, oh yes...
