Hide CaptionShow CaptionCooper modernizes the cabinet doors with a zebra wood faux finish and modern drawer pulls.
First he takes down all the doors, removes the hardware, scrapes off the white laminate and sands the surface. Then the cabinet doors are ready for the four-part faux finish process to look like zebra wood:

  1. Apply a light brown base coat.

  2. Add black variations for a natural look.

  3. Apply a faux glaze mixed with a putty color paint (50/50 ratio) and some brown paint on top.

  4. Use a razor to cut notches out of a shower squeegee and then drag off to remove some of the glaze/paint mixture.
