Beadboard Look Cupboard Door's

So I wanted to update my kitchen cabinet's without spending a whole lot of money. I love the look of the beadboard door's so I decided to try to make my door's look as if they were made with beadboard.

I marked out every two inches on the middle of each door, Then took a straight board and clamped to the board the marks are where I lined up the board for each cut. I routered line's all the way across the middle piece.

Here it is with all the line's routered. Then I just took a small piece of sand paper and sanded down the line's to get out the excess paint. Then I just roughed up each door with a sander and primed, painted and sealed each door with polyurethane for easy cleaning.

This is the bit I used to router with it's 9906 Dremel I got mine at Ace Hardware.

I set the guard on the highest setting before I routed the door's and tested on a scrap board before I routered into the door's themselves to make sure the depth was right, didn't want to go through my door's then I would have had a really big problem.

I'm getting closer to being done with my makeover and will have pictures up soon. I'm not going to lie it's a lot of work if you want to do this but so worth it!!!

Here is a link to the tutorial I kinda used to do my countertops here.

I'm impressed!!! My router is by far one of my favorite tools (but I am coveting your small one- mine is huge and I can't use it w/o the table) Your cupboards look so great!
