DIY Mirror Closet Makeover Idea: How to Turn Sliding Doors into Japanese Shoji Screens

This project is very easy to undo with no damage to the closet doors if you decide you don’t like the look or don’t want to make any permanent changes in your camper or motorhome.

Green Cup

Materials needed: 1. Adhesive vinyl rice paper window film  2. Wood stain 3. Tape measure 4. Utility knife 5. Scissors

Step 1: 

The first step was to measure to find out how much window film and veneer edging was needed, which depends on the design.

Step 2:

The window film I bought had a very helpful grid and number measurements marked on the back to make cutting easier.  Time to cut out the pieces.

Step 3:

To apply the window film, I peeled the backing away from one corner and carefully positioned that corner so that it would be lined up properly, then I stuck it down as I slowly peeled off the backing.

Step 4:

Then I lifted one half at a time and used a cooking spatula to smooth it out as I laid it back down.

Step 5:

After working out all of the bubbles, I used a utility knife to trim the edges.

Step 6:

Piece one finished!

Step 7:

Skipping ahead an hour or two, this is what it looked like when I got all of the window film on.
