Easy Cabinet Updates: Mosaic Masterpiece

Update your kitchen with this easy cabinet door makeover. All it takes is a few tools and an afternoon.

What You Need:

  • Primer
  • Latex paint
  • Flat dishes or ceramic pieces
  • Wood or ceramic glue
  • Grout
  • Paint pen
  • Hardware

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 two or three coats of latex paint.
  4. If using flat dishes, break into pieces.
  5. On the raised panel area, lay pieces like a puzzle, leaving about 1/8 inch between pieces. Once pieces are arranged, adhere them one at a time to the door with work or ceramic glue. Let dry overnight.
  6. Sand rough spots and polish the pieces.
  7. Using a paint pen outline the arched panel in a complementary color.
  8. Attach desired hardware.
