Beadboard Wallpaper in Kitchen Cabinets

Here's how I did to transform my kitchen cabinets. 
First remove all the cabinet doors then measure and cut the beadboard wallpaper.



Next, wet the back of the wallpaper and let it sit for about 5 minutes then adhere to the cabinet doors (make sure to remove the bubbles by pressing it with cloth). An instruction is available in a piece of paper attached to the wallpaper packaging. Let it sit overnight.


Cut about 1 and 1/2 inches of thin board (sorry, i don't know what it's called.). I bought this in Home Depot. I pretty sure all the home renovation store have this. This will serve as the trim of the cabinets. Sand it attach to the sides of the cabinet door. I used nails instead of wood glue to make sure it will not fall in the future.  


You'll notice I did not use a fancy trim the main reason is this trim should be thin so the cabinet doors will open widely. Apply a Dry Dex Spackling by DAP then sand it.



Put the knob and paint it. FYI, in this drawers the beadboard wallpaper were all painted BEHR High-Gloss.

  18. Love this idea! My cabinets are identical to yours but they're yellowing badly. I am seriously contemplating trying this idea! Did you wrap the beadboard wall paper around the edges of the doors? Is it unsightly when you open the door? Thanks for your help!

  21. This idea is both beautiful and clever. Additionally, thank you for keeping cabinets out of the landfill by reusing!

    Does the paperboard hold up to wet kitchen applications 2 years down the road, or has it bubbled? I was going to use finger groove pine, but now i'm curious...
