Resurfacing your kitchen cabinets in a contemporary flower motif is super easy and a fun way to add a fun and whimsical touch to a kitchen cabinet, playroom cabinet, or even the surface of an armoire as there are different types of drawer slides that you can choose from according to your kitchen style.
I have lived in many old homes and resurfaced many kitchen cabinets in a variety of different paint treatments. This technique combines a combination of paint and three-dimensional flowers made out of silver stainless steel sheeting material!
To Resurface Your Kitchen Cabinets in This Contemporary Stainless Steel Flower Motif You Will Need:
- Stainless steel sheeting
- Tin snips
- Epoxy Glue
- Black sharpie marker
So, to get started you will need to sand and paint your kitchen cabinets any color you wish. Primer first and then paint to ensure a long-lasting finish on the cabinets.
Now, while all the paint is drying you can start working on your stainless steel contemporary flowers.
I made a video showing you how to cut out and assemble the flowers. Click here to watch it. In the video, I am using fabric, but thin and pliable metal sheeting will work well!
So, all you need to do it layout your sheet of thin stainless steel metal. If you do not want to go through the trouble actually using real metal sheeting you could also use some of that contact paper that looks just like stainless steel! It looks great and will work equally as well to update the surface of your game room cabinets, kitchen cabinets, or studio cabinets.
By the way, try mixing and matching copper and silver metal sheeting for a sophisticated look.
Now, use your sharpie marker to draw out the large daisy outline on a sheet of card stock. Now, draw a slightly smaller daisy on the card stock as well. The large daisy outline should be about 3 inches across and the smaller flower about 2 inches across.
Now, cut out these little templates and use them to trace onto your metal sheeting or contact paper. You will need two large daisies and four small daisies for each flower.
Assemble the flowers as shown in the video. Use epoxy glue to glue them together and let this dry completely for twenty-four hours. Be sure to read your specific type of epoxy glue for the correct drying time.
Now, once all paint and glue have cured or dried you are ready to start adhering the contemporary metal flowers to the kitchen cabinets.
You can do this in any pattern you wish, but I think it looks awesome to adhere to them in a checkerboard type pattern.
You can also create swirls of flowers starting with one flower in the center of the kitchen cabinet and then spiraling outward. The look can be as whimsical as you want.
This simple kitchen cabinet resurfacing project is for the artistic and whimsical individual who loves a unique and contemporary look in their home!!
For a contemporary metal, the garden tries gluing your flowers near the top half of your cabinet doors. Now, use your metal sheeting again and cut out systems and leaves as well! They can also be glued onto the fronts of your outdated cabinets!
