decoupage drawer... and the sides! i should do this in my kitchen because those cabinets leave much to be desired.

This 1950's sturdy piece has been reversed stenciled. The reverse stenciling can be a matter of using painters tape to create the design that will be the focus. Sides and base could be dark stained or painted out dark. Drawers were painted with ship being created by blocking wood design w/painter's tape or it could be paint stenciled.

How to properly paint wood furniture: If the surface is already painted or varnished, remove dirt or wax buildup with a household cleaner and rinse. Sand rough areas and wipe away dust with a tack cloth. Apply two coats of stain-blocking primer and allow it to dry between coats. Roll or brush on two coats of latex paint in the direction of the wood grain. Use a brush to finish the surface with smooth strokes. For furniture or cabinetry that will receive heavy use (like kitchen cabinets that are opened on a daily basis), it's a good idea to seal the finish with two coats of polyurethane.
