Wardrobe Painting


Introduction: Wardrobe Painting

About: Hey! My name is Roey Leon, from Tel Aviv, Israel. On my free time, as a hobby of mine, I love building stuff from scratch. It always starts with a crazy idea, and then I realize that it`s too Dangerous / Una...

Hey ALL!

I finished another project ! , in which i earned two things , first my room got whole lot bigger ! and i got my self

a " new" Wardrobe !

It`s color was brown , and to buy a new one will cost at least 1500$ for a huge closet like this.

So, the best was to paint it !

You need the next in order to complete it successfully :

10m of Sanding paper grit 150

10m of sanding paper grit 250 - for smoothing the surface

Primer color for the paint to bond to the wood.

2 Brushes

1 Roller

Lots of time ,coffee and a smile


Step 1: Remove All Doors

Step 2: Let the Sanding Begin

Sand it with the 150 grit sanding paper

Step 3: Primer Time!

After you cleaned the wood from all the debris , paint a good layer of the primer.

Let each layer to dry for at least 24 hours.

*Between each layer , sand the primer for a bit with a Grit 80 sanding paper

After it dried , paint a two more layers !

Step 4: Let the Paint Begin!

Paint a good solid layer with the roller and use the brush if you need

Again , let the paint dry for at least 24 hours !

Step 5: Still Painting ...

Step 6: Yep.. Still...

Step 7: Finished!

I bought new knobs for the closet.

Came out awesome!

It made the room bigger, and much more comfortable to be in

Enjoy !

    You did a great job on this RoeyLeon. It's inspiring what some clever & patient elbow grease can do. I'm filling holes & sanding back some walls that had 30 yrs old dreary wallpaper on them. Your work gives me encouragement .... can't wait for the uplifting white paint to go on !!!

    What a difference some color can make! Beautiful.
