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.
First, start by removing the knob and hinges so that the door sits flat on the table.
Secondly, clean it with White Lightning and rinse it with fresh water to remove any leftover soap.
Next, sand with a grit sanding sponge just to rough up the surface and use a tack cloth to wipe back the sanding dust.
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!)
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.
Subsequently, I chose to add some color by placing a Sunflower transfer by taking off the wax backing and stick it in place.
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.
Finally, apply two coats of Clear Coat in Flat to protect the stain, the paint, and the transfer.
