Peekaboo Bird

Give old wood doors a makeover, but let a bit of their original character show through. 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.
