Prepare Door Fronts
Identify each cabinet and its corresponding door with painters' tape marked with the same number. Remove cabinet door fronts and existing hardware then wipe with a damp cloth to assure clean surface. Choose a partially covered, well-ventilated outdoor space then cover floor and walls with sheet plastic. Lay door fronts flat on ground or against wall.
Add Decorative Molding
Using a miter saw, cut decorative molding to size, then miter edges. Add wood glue to back of molding, pressing each piece in its place. Once glue has dried, caulk inside and outside edges of molding.
Create Holes for Hardware
Mark off screw holes for the door pulls then drill through back of the cabinet door.
