If your kitchen has bland plywood kitchen cabinet doors, here’s a quick way to liven them up.

  • Mark approximately 2½” in from the outer edges of the cabinet door.
  • Measure and miter four pieces of molding to length.
  • Stain the molding and nail the pieces to the face of the door, making sure the nails do not protrude through the door.

    My wife and I like your idea on redoing caninet doors, but can you do the same thing on drawer fronts.
    On painting the boxes of cabinets do you have to sand the paint if the cabinets are 15 years old.

    Hi Lee,
    Yes, you can apply moldings to drawer fronts so they match the molding applied in the video above to plywood door. It’s always a good idea to thoroughly clean cabinets and lightly sand them before refinishing. If your cabinets are stained and you are just applying another topcoat of varnish, just lightly sand them with fine (220 grit) sandpaper before finishing, being careful not to sand through the existing finish and into the stained wood. Good luck with your project!
