She and Justin have remodeled three homes from top to bottom and are working on their fourth.
Who loves the look of the classic shaker style cabinet doors? But I could not bring myself to rip out these solid wood cabinets, plus I did not want to spend the money on new ones.
Then I placed the cabinet door right side down on top of the strip. Once both sides pieces are attached now we could add the inside trim pieces.
Before I could add the trim to the doors I needed to prep the doors so they were ready for paint.
I decided to strip all the old paint off my cabinet doors because they were not painted very well before But if that is not your case here are some great tutorials on prepping cabinets to paint, from Young House Love and from Cherished Bliss.
Now that I had my MDF cut and doors sanded I was ready to add the trim to the cabinets. The first step was prepping the MDF strips, to do this I sanded the edges with #220 grit sandpaper to give them a smooth finish after cutting, Next, I placed the MDF strip flat on a sheet on the ground.
