Need help. This thing is my cubard.

1 side is clothes, the other shelves. Im thinking of turning them into curtains, but i still want to be able to be able to put those doors back on, what shall i do?

This was my idea.

Stick curtains on there with velcro. Like with pletes in the fabric.
Anybody else have any ideas? Cheesy Or tips to improve my velrco-ing idea?  Undecided

Plus the curtains will be machine washable! so every fortnight i will take them off and put em in the washing machine!

I recently replaced my sliding doors with a curtain - just popped a tension rod in behind the bit that hides the tracks, added some curtains, and voila! 

The doors now live in our garage until it's time to sell the house, then they'll go back in.

I took my sliders off my craft room doors--too much of a pain to get in and out ...They were easy to remove with just a screw driver to losen them off the tracks(stored in attic now!)...I also used a tension rod with curtains...I am going to add rings to the top of the curtain, though, because for my closet, I would prefer they slide  more...we also used a shower curtain in a closet in the laundry room--it slides easily, is pretty waterproof and easy to wash--good luck and hope you post your finished project!

Newbie here, my first reply to a post.

I've got two build in wardrobes with awful sliding doors and have always wanted to change them but was never too sure what to do.  Now I do!!  I've also wanted more artwork in my bedroom and now you've inspired me to combine the two. I'm thinking hand painted/decorated curtains.......

Any one any ideas?
