Apply a coat of polyurethane to seal the wood. To create this peekaboo bird, trace a bird onto contact paper (we used clip art found online), then cut it out and press it onto the cabinet front. Use your fingernail to seal the edges tightly. Paint the cabinet (we used off-white semigloss interior latex paint). When dry, carefully remove the contact paper to reveal your design. Use a damp cloth to remove any paint that bleeds under the contact paper. 4 of 24 Facebook Pinterest Trimwork on Parade Add interest to a plain cabinet door by parading pretty trimwork around the door’s perimeter. Measure your cabinet door to determine how much molding you’ll need. Be sure to factor in the size of the four embellishments for the corners. Use a miter box to cut the molding strips to size. Paint the cabinet, molding, and embellishments the same color. When they are dry, use wood glue to affix the molding and embellishments to the cabinet. Clamp the pieces in place until the glue dries. 5 of 24 Facebook Pinterest Beaded-Board Basics Add country flavor to your kitchen with this technique. Beaded-board panels are inset in the cutout center section of the door.
