If you know me at all, then you know that I love a project that I can finish within a few hours, and especially if it’s something easy enough to work on when I finish up my work day. and this little cabinet was the perfect project for that.
Before we could start working, we had to gather our supplies..
- Chalk Paint
- Sanding Block
- Spray Paint (to refresh hardware)
- Screwdriver (if needed for hardware)
- Contact Paper
- Wet cloth
- Razor Blade (or painters tape)
STEP 1: remove hardware, separate the door from the rest of the cabinet, tape off the window if using painters tape
STEP 2: sand down all of the cabinet and the door with the sanding block, the wipe off the dust from sanding with a damp cloth
STEP 3: using the chalk paint, paint your pieces. Let dry and add 1-2 more coats, as needed, and allowing to dry in between coats.
STEP 4: spray paint your hardware.
STEP 5: while the hardware dries, use the razor blade (very carefully) to scrape the paint off of the window of the door.
STEP 6: measure the places (in this case, the shelves) where the contact paper is going to go. Cut contact paper to size, peel it and stick it in place
STEP 7: replace the hardware and tada- you did it!
Thanks for following along, see ya soon!
