How Easy-to-Apply DIY Window Grids Can Transform Your Doors
Are you ready to give your window or door a makeover with a custom, high-end look using DIY window grids? Join me as I take you through the step-by-step process of transforming your doors and windows with these sleek black faux grids. Let's dive into this exciting and budget-friendly project!
Materials and tools
- Oil-based primer
- SW Tricorn Black oil enamel paint (or your preferred color)
- Measuring tape
- Utility knife
- Adhesive tape
- Protective gloves
- Drop cloth or newspapers
1. Prep and paint the doors
Apply an oil-based primer to the doors. This will help the paint adhere better and ensure durability.
Once the primer is dry, use Sherwin-Williams Tricorn Black oil enamel paint (or your chosen color) to paint the doors. This type of paint offers both a stunning finish and long-lasting results.
2. Measure and mark the glass
Now, let's measure and mark where the grids will be placed on the glass.
Using a measuring tape, determine the dimensions for your window grids. For a classic look, consider a grid of six sections: one vertical divider and two horizontal dividers.
Carefully mark the points on the glass where the dividers will be placed. Make sure your marks are precise and evenly spaced.
3. Apply the trim
Cut the adhesive tape to match the length of your dividers using a utility knife. Be cautious and use protective gloves while cutting.
Peel back the adhesive backing of the tape as you carefully attach it to the marked areas on the glass. Press down firmly to ensure a secure bond.
