HOW TO MAKE A SHAKER CABINET DOOR
If your cabinet doors scream their decade, painting them makes a huge difference – but the fact remains they are still dated.
How to Build a Shaker Cabinet Door
Step 1: Determine the cabinet size.
This is pretty simple. All you have to do is measure the opening of the cabinet and then add the desired overlap. Most people opt for 1/2 inch.
