Remove the doors and drawers from the cabinet.
Prime the fronts of the doors and drawers. Paint over the primer with a contrasting color in rich hues, such as periwinkle blue.
Pick any kind of image you'd like to decoupage the cabinet front. Search flea markets for vintage postcards, seed packets, old photographs — you name it. But it's important to make a color copy of the image, not use the original. That way the cabinet surface will be completely smooth when you're done. With a copy, you can also enlarge or reduce your image to suit your purpose.
Cut the color copied images to suit your design. Take some time and lay out a pattern that appeals to you on the cabinet fronts. Then remove the images.
Use a foam brush to apply a lavish layer of decoupage medium such as Mod Podge to the painted cabinet fronts. Arrange your images on top of the Mod Podge and then apply another coat over top of the image and the surface.
Don't worry, the glue dries clear!
Wait two days for the decoupage medium to dry. Then seal it with varnish.
