How do I replace my glass doors in my cabinet with some kind of wire? I am trying to give the cabinets in my bathroom a rustic look?

    You might be happier adding the wire in front of the glass. Either way, cut the wire mesh slightly larger than opening and staple it on. Then use a thin molding to cover the staples. Chicken wire is fairly flexible so if you open/close the cabinets much it could start looking beat up pretty quickly.

    Glass is held in with molding on the back of the doors. Remove the molding and the glass should come out. Replace with chicken wire or wire mesh. Use the glass as a template for cutting the proper size.

    You should be able to pop the glass out and use chicken wire! :) Cut the chicken wire to fit your space and use a staple gun to get the wire to fit on the cabinet door.

    I agree with Vallycat but I would put it on the back so you can clean the glass.

    You can use chicken wire or hardware cloth (it is small squares). You should be able to pop out the glass probably by removing the caulking. You can then use a staple gun to add the wire to the inside molding of the cabinet.
