splat­tered cab­i­net

Give your cab­i­net a Jack­son Pol­lock ef­fect and make a state­ment. Start by lightly sand­ing the cab­i­net then clean thor­oughly with a cloth. Paint two coats of un­der­coat and allow to dry (leave the cab­i­net doors ajar so they don't stick) be­fore ap­ply­ing your base colour – we chose matte black. Turn the cab­i­net flat on its back on a drop sheet and, stand­ing above it, flick/splash/drop paint onto it to achieve the splat­ter look. Leave to dry then re­paint the han­dles.
