When I first started decorating my home the doors in the home were overlooked, I did not ignore them, they were simple just there. Once I fell hard for home decor I did a few things to change up my home and the doors were a part of that. I changed the hardware, painted them and even built a barn door which you can see above. I will be sharing the tutorial of that later this week! It has been in my home for a while and made a few appearances in pictures, but I have never shared the full tutorial here. Doors are one of those smaller  parts of a home that make the bigger picture that much better. A door will not make or break a space, but it certainly adds to the overall look, it is the icing on the cake. A cake is still good without icing, but not as pretty or as yummy. In fact if you are like one of my kids, the icing is the best part. I love the details in a home, the wood work, lighting, trim or other small details. They are what makes a home feel 100% decorated and thought out. I put a lot of effort into my home, and enjoy every moment of it. These 20 stunning door makeover and DIY ideas  show just what some paint, wood or an idea can do to help transform a space!

From front doors, to closet doors, to barn doors…. there are so many options, colors and ideas to transform a door and allow the door to become part of the home decor!

    My door needs a makeover. Between dirty handprints and wear and tear it is looking rough.

  3. I have always like the look of the barn doors on rollers. Wish there was someplace in our home to incorporate that type of door. I could do one door on our bedroom closet if I could talk hubby into changing the doors.

  4. When I finally own a house, I want a barn door. I love the style and I know its on trend, but they are beautiful!

  11. I love all of these door makeover pictures. We have a front door that is mostly glass with a solid wood frame that I really like.

  12. Our house was flipped, and the gentleman who owned it before us did a pretty great job. Thankfully, he put in quality materials in most places. One glaring thing that has got to go are the doors. They look cheap, they feel cheap. Time for an upgrade.

    • I have an HOA too and had to get approval to paint my shutters and front door. But very good point on the inside, they cannot control that!

  17. I’ve been seriously thinking about door makeovers! We are planning on getting a new front door but it keeps getting pushed further down on the list. Maybe sprucing up the paint a little bit will tide me over.
