To do this Painted Vintage Wood Window Shutters kitchen cabinet resurfacing Project Will Need:
Painted Vintage Wood Window Shutters
1-2 inch finishing nails
Paint (Your choice of color, optional)
The first step is to measure your existing kitchen cabinet doors. I recommend doing this for each kitchen cabinet. Write these down and you can buy your new or vintage wood window shutters to fit. The vertical rectangle shape of the vintage wood shutters will mimic the existing shape of your cabinet.
These vintage wood shutters will be applied to the middle front of each cabinet. You will not be replacing the actual doors. Think of these as an embellishment.
Once you have your Vintage Wood Window Shutters attached to the kitchen cabinets you can use picture frame molding to trim them out. This will add more dimensions and provide a professional and finished edge to your kitchen cabinet resurfacing project. This is optional though.
Now, I like to prime the entire Vintage Wood Window Shutters out in a good quality primer. Next apply a couple coats of paint in a fun color. This will freshen up the look of your kitchen cabinets.
Now, use your 1 to 2 inch finishing nails to attach them to the kitchen cabinet doors. You should center each Vintage Wood Window Shutter on the cabinet door. Use some wood glue to help as well.
Keep repeating until you cover the entire set of kitchen cabinets you have.
Use a miter saw to cut your picture molding to fit each for the four sides of the Vintage Wood Window Shutters on your resurfaced kitchen cabinets. These should also be painted or stained to match the fun vintage window shutters you hung.
You will want each piece to have a 90-degree angle cut so they can fit together like a frame. Use one inch finishing nails to attach the wood frame or picture frame molding to the kitchen cabinet either way.
Now you are finished! You have given your old kitchen cabinets new life and architectural detail with some Vintage Wood Window Shutters!
