A Closet Door Transformation for under $2 (aka washi tape)


Transform your closet doors with inexpensive washi tape! It’s cheap, easy, and will give your plain-jane doors a renter friendly boost.

Hi there! I’m so glad you stopped by today.  I have the easiest and cheapest DIY that’s completely renter friendly but first I had to share some exciting news!  Last week I ordered a 50mm fixed lens and it finally arrived.  I’m having so much fun with it and wanted to share the first few pics I captured.  (I know I have a long ways to go but I already see an improvement!)


I am by no means a professional photographer.  I learn by making mistakes first. A lot of mistakes. I hope using my wide lens and learning how to use the fixed lens will make me a better photographer!

Okay, enough of random pictures.  Let’s get to the awesome DIY! 

DIY Washi Tape Closet Doors


I love that $2 can make such a big difference.  Change those boring white doors into something fabulous!

With just a roll and half of washi tape, I added more interest by taping right inside the molding of each bifold door.

I overlapped the tape in the corners and skipped over the handle.

I love the gold diagonal stipe pattern in the tape.  The doors look great with my fur rug.

The rug is a 9 x 11 and was a steal at 27 buckaroos!

Here’s the before and after side by side. closet-doors-before-after

Nifty, right?  It’s so easy and just takes a few minutes.

Have you discovered any new uses for washi tape?



  1. This is amazing! I have never thought that you can change the look of your home that fast and creative. I will search for pink band for my kiddo’s room.
