DIY Old Kitchen Cabinet Doors

Hey everyone, it’s Rachel from Tea and Forget-me-nots here! Here is the step-by-step process of how to DIY Old Kitchen Cabinet Doors.

Materials List:

White Lightning

Dixie Belle Sanding Sponge

Tack Cloth

No Pain Gel Stain- American Honey 

Foam N Dandy

Dixie Belle Wood Graining Tool Set

Dixie Belle Oyster Silk Paint


Dixie Belle Sunflowers Transfer

Dixie Belle Clear Coat- Flat

How To:

Step 1:

First, start by removing the knob and hinges so that the door sits flat on the table.

Step 2:

Secondly, clean it with White Lightning and rinse it with fresh water to remove any leftover soap.

Step 3:

Next, sand with a grit sanding sponge just to rough up the surface and use a tack cloth to wipe back the sanding dust.

Step 4:

Continuing on, I applied American Honey  with a wide foam brush and wiped it back after a few minutes with a paper towel.

Step 5:

Thereafter, apply paint or a stain to the surface. (You can drag the tool through the paint to create grain-like patterns within the wood!)

Step 6:

Then, I chose to add a custom stencil by sticking the stencil down with stencil spray and painted the words on using the paint color  Oyster.

Step 7:

Subsequently, I chose to add some color by placing a Sunflower transfer by taking off the wax backing and stick it in place.

Step 8:

After, use the burnishing tool to firmly rub it. You can see if it’s been attached by peeling up the plastic, if the image is still on the plastic then rub it more.

Step 9:

Finally, apply two coats of  Clear Coat in Flat to protect the stain, the paint, and the transfer.
