I got an old kitchen wall cabinet as a gift. The frame he was quite decent and throwing out such furniture was a pity, and I wanted to save on the purchase of new kitchen furniture, which we did not have. Then I decided to restore this cabinet with the help of ordinary self-adhesive film.
There were a lot of colors in the store, and the price of such a film is small. I bought two meters of 45 centimeters wide film. First, I unscrewed the old, outdated furniture handles.
So as the cabinet was previously pasted over with a film, I had to remove it.It is removed quite simply, but leaves behind an ugly sticky layer, which must also be removed. I removed this layer with a regular cleaning powder and an abrasive sponge. I can say that I had to rub it thoroughly, but I still cleared the closet.
Doors must also be unscrewed in order to make them easier to glue.
Next you need measure the length and width of the film for pasting the door. We take the length and width of the film with a margin of 3 centimeters.
Then separate the edge of the film from its base and gently apply to the top or bottom parts of the door on the front side (see the photo below for how this is done).Note that it is very important to separate only the edge of the film, and not all at once.
Now we take a piece of soft fabric and, smoothing the film with it, glue it to the door. With our right hand, we slowly draw the base of the film, which is at the bottom, and with the left one, smooth the front side constantly. Thus, the film will stick very smoothly without bubbles and bends.
When the front part the doors will be glued over, we turn the door upside down.
Getting to the gluing of the end parts of the door. To do this, glue the film first to the lower (or upper) end (see photo).
Next we make an incision on the side in the way shown in the photo,and wrap the cut piece, sticking it.
Cut off the upper part of the piece with a simple stationery knife.
Fold down the remaining sharpening edge and glue it on the inside of the door. Then in the same way we process a corner on the other hand. We also glue the butt on the opposite side.
Fold the edge of the film along the long end of the door and glue it.
Cut out the edges of the cutting edge with a clerical knife or regular scissors.
The door is ready! See how the film is neatly glued in the manner described above.
We fasten new furniture handles.
And here is a ready cabinet. If you want, you can glue the end of the cabinet itself.
