Prep Doors

Remove existing hardware so each door is separate. Paint door edges in desired color, if needed.

Add Batting

Lay bi-fold doors out on a long, flat work surface. Use a tape measure to determine the width and height of doors. Mark dimensions down in notepad with pencil. Use fabric scissors to cut batting 1/4-inch shorter than door on all sides. Attach batting to front and back of each door with staple gun.

Attach Fabric

Mark then cut fabric to same dimensions as batting. Attach fabric to doors, over batting, pulling fabric taught as you staple.
