How to Make It:

  1. Fill any nicks in the door with wood filler.
  2. Lightly sand each door to rough up the entire surface. For already-finished cabinetry, use a bonding primer to ensure new paint will stick.
  3. Apply a stain-blocking primer.
  4. Add a coat of light-colored paint.
  5. Add two coats of dark-colored paint.
  6. When the door is dry, lightly sand edges to expose light paint and wood.
  7. Using a scroll saw, cut the pattern pieces from a 1/8-inch-thick board.
  8. Lightly sand edges of the pieces, then apply a coat of light paint.
  9. When pieces are dry, brush on a mixture of one part dark paint to one part water. Let stand 10 seconds. Wipe with a clean rag to mute the color.
  10. When dry, apply pieces to the door with wood glue.
