Here is an example of what can be done with a dated oak kitchen.
The client wasn’t prepared to rip out the old kitchen for something that probably would not be the same build quality as this solid oak kitchen.
I recommended French Grey by Little Paint and Paper Library. I also recommended that it was painted in their oil eggshell due to its hard wearing properties.
I took off all the doors and knobs and took them to my workshop where I spent a few days giving them a good de-greasing, sanding them down and applying Otex high adhesion primer by Tikkurila.
I followed this with sanding down between coats and applying three coats of the oil eggshell. I also sanded down between coats to ensure a super smooth and perfect finish.
The above procedure was applied to the carcasses and end panels of the kitchen.
I mask off all the areas around the kitchen which means that the granite is covered with grade 1200 lining paper and also the floor. This is so that the kitchen can be vacuumed daily until the in situ parts are finished.This eliminates the use of dust sheets which kick up dust in the air when moved at the end of the day
I hung the doors back on with the new knobs and voila! Another hand painted kitchen created by my good self.
