Atran Red Cross

Materials: Atran medicine cabinet

Description: I used painter’s tape to mask off the red cross symbol on the front door of the Atran lockable cabinet. Next I took 180 grit sand paper and gently scuffed up the remaining surface of the front door.

    The sand paper idea is good but I’d recommend using a finer grit (1000-2000) to remove any visible patterns of sanding but give you a grained effect.

    nice hack. i think frosted spray paint would have fit in a bit better with the decor you have.
