How to apply window film to glass kitchen cabinet doors. I’m finally coming to the end of my my mini kitchen remodel and just finished tackling my lower cabinets and the shelf above my sink. Leaving me with a pile of stuff that now belonged in my upper cabinets. The issue was: NONE OF IT WAS PRETTY. Apparently, I just don’t have many pretty things… Which is a problem because the windows I used for cabinet doors you can see through… because they’re windows!
Applying Window Film to My Glass Kitchen Cabinet Doors
It seems like I’ve been using that word a LOT lately – according to my workshop, laundry room and newly painted entryway I guess I needed some more color in my life!
I am so impressed with these window films! I added a film to my windows in my workshop too and it was as simple as cutting it to size, wetting the glass and just smoothing it on there. I used a pair of scissors and an exacto knife and took my time.
This WAS a bit more tedious then I had at first thought because I wanted the pattern to line up correctly. So, it was a little bit of a headache and I was SO SO glad I had extra because I did screw it up a couple of times!
On top of that, because these are very old windows the window film will never be perfect. You can see in the close up that there are bubbles that are impossible to remove etc. But I decided it was just fine.

The bubbles are not inevitable, if you use a water spray bottle with a few drops of dawn soap, spray the glass, apply the vinyl, and work out the water from the center out with a spatula tool or credit card. Any remaining bubbles can be pricked and flattened.
