Hand painted kitchen in Gerrards Cross, Buckinghamshire

Kitchen cabinet painter Gerrards Cross

This kitchen was in great need of a re paint having not been touched for 20 years.

This kitchen was made and installed by a local company approx 20 years ago and the finish was a dragged finish with a varnish on top. Furthermore, the areas around the knobs and the knobs themselves had worn away over the years. A good degrease and also a good sand down was going to prepare them for the new paint system.

Like every kitchen that I do it is important that protection is put down before any degreasing and prep work begin. Kitchen cabinet painter Gerrards Cross

You can see the areas of ware around the knobs. These have to be meticulously prepared or the following paint system will not adhere.

Paint effects

The dragged finish will eventually come back into fashion as it is also a  classic look for any furniture. With my background it would be easy to apply! In all the years that I have been painting kitchens, dragging was undoubtedly one of the more popular paint effects.

After prepping the knobs they now look as good as new. A very simple and cost effective way of enhancing any kitchen and also saving a few pounds and avoiding any unnecessary landfill. Kitchen cabinet painter Gerrards Cross

The kitchen is indeed looking as good as new after all the prep. The new paint supplied by Holmans is Tikkurila Helmi Matt in a colour equivalent to Little Green’s Ivory. You would certainly never believe that this kitchen was over 20 years old.

The plate rack was furthermore left in the contrasting blue at a request by the client. The tops were sanded and furthermore, re oiled.

A fantastic project with the minimum amount of disruption to the client as the kitchen was still accessible to use.
