I thought this was a cool idea.

Approximate Time: 2 hours



Paint your cupboard door with house paint, colour of your choice. Let dry, you may need 2 coats. I did black and blue.

Use your stencil or free hand and put your design on with acyrilic paint. Let dry.

Drill holes for your handle pulls. Also spray paint your handles, colour of your choice. When dry, attach onto your tray. You will need ones your hands can fit into.


You can add a protective coat of shellac, if you want. Then you're done.
