Adding glass is an inexpensive way to transform builder-grade cabinet doors into beautiful, custom-looking glass insert doors.
I had painted all the oak doors creamy white prior to this.
They get pretty scuffed up in the process so I would have saved the painting for after the cuts were made.
Remove the center panel, a router would come in handy here….on our list of things to purchase this year.
With the panel removed, you have something like a picture frame.
Add a very small piece of molding to hide all the rough cuts and paint.
We took our doors into the glass shop and they measured for us. $8 a piece, what a deal!
Run a single bead of clear silicone caulk in the groove.
Press the pane of glass into the groove, let it dry overnight. Add a simple plastic frame clip.
I think the most important thing is you have to realize that there is no going back, you can’t un-do what you’re about to do.
Start with two, if you love them add more.
Remember sometimes less is more!
Enjoy your day!
