Replacing Mirrored Sliding Closet Doors

I would like to replace the closet doors as they are peeling off the brass colored coating. I saw some very nice ones in one of the new coaches but I did not pay attention to the make at that time. Any suggestions?

My first thought would be to paint the old frames. If you measure the doors, you might find that a shop can make new door frames, using the old mirrors.

The mirrors are probably tempered glass, which would be expensive to replace. New sliding mirrored closets must be the exact size, the glass can't be cut after tempering.

Dittos. I had to replace one of my mirrors and it was a whopping $150 so the best bet would be to paint the frames. Those doors are a special size and would have to be built. It can be done but you'd have to find a shop that builds wardrobe doors locally and yes the mirrors are tempered and they could use the original mirrors with new frames. Shops that sell residential finish products (doors, trim and windows) would more than likely know someone locally if your really bent on changing them out.
