Ok, my bedroom has two sets of sliding doors on the closet, four sliding doors in all, all solid mirror.  That is like a whole wall of mirror.  I want to cover, decorate, disguise or otherwise hide them.  I don't want any mirror visible, and the sliding door still has to work since I can't afford to replace them right now.  Any ideas for my mirror be gone mission?

you could use spray paint.  that way it could be scraped off if you ever  change your mind.   OR cover it with photos of every article of clothing you have and shoes and accessories.  that may make it easier to pick out outfits too??  maybe photos of places you would like to go? or people (family)

there is that paint that you can write on with chalk after its dry.  you could paint it with that then you could use it like a chalk board and change it up every so often.

I had this same problem in my last apartment. One entire wall of our bedroom was floor to ceiling mirrored closet doors! While I never actually got around to covering them, I did consider covering them in vinyl window film. This would be easy to remove (if you rent like I did) and would still allow the mirrors to reflect some light.
Here's a site with lots of different options: http://www.windowfilmworld.com/
Hope this helps!

There is some really interesting contact paper that could be changed out if you don't like the way it looks. I saw some at Amazon. You could make cut outs or just cover the entire thing. Temporary changes are sometimes best. What if you miss the fact that you could actually look at yourself from head to toe before going out? (There are so many times I wish I'd been able to do that.)

How about wallpaper and double-sided sticky tape. The tape residue will come off easily with meth spirit and you get a lovely wall-papered feature wall!

Could you unhook them and turn them around so the mirrors are inside? Most sliding doors can be unhooked easily (if you have 2 people!) and depending on how the track is made they may fit & slide normally even when turned.

Another idea is to hook a cut-out tapestry on both ends of the mirror to completely cover the surface. It'll appear like a window due to the curtain-like appearance of the tapestry. Personally, though, I'd enjoy posting your favorite pictures on the mirror instead, making it appear intimate.

You can cover it with wallpapers or posters, or better yet with some stylish clothing.
