Upcycled Cabinet Door Craft Supplies:

Upcycled Cabinet Door Craft Tutorial:
- Start by prepping your cabinet door for the transfer by painting it with Dixie Belle Chalk Paint in either Buttercream or Fluff. This base layer does not need to be perfect!
- Next, use your hand sander or sandpaper to remove some of the paint from the edges and around the details of the cabinet door.
- Once your piece is sanded, add a layer of the Tobacco Road Voodoo Gel to the areas you revealed when sanding. Be sure to wipe off any excess Gel Stain from your piece. Let dry.
- Now you are ready to add your Houndstooth Pattern Transfer from Chalk Couture. PRO Tip: Before you apply your transfer, be sure to use the Fuzzing Cloth to remove some of the stickiness.
- Apply your Houndstooth Pattern Transfer to your cabinet door and use your squeegee to apply your Chalkology Paste in the color Fresh Linen. Wipe back any excess paste and remove your transfer. PRO TIP: When using large transfer, work in sections when applying paste.
- Finally, let your piece dry and add a wreath using some ribbon or a command hook. THIS wreath is very similar to the one I used in the tutorial.
