Back in 2021 during the pandemic, I was contacted by a lady in Pitstone. She was looking at changing the colour of her new kitchen in a house that she had recently moved into. Kitchen cabinet painter Pitstone Buckinghamshire

Pitstone

The village name is Anglo-Saxon in origin, and means ‘Picel’s thorn tree’. It was recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Pincelestorne.

Pitstone was given to the abbey at Ashridge by the Earl of Cornwall in 1283. In 1290 King Edward I spent Christmas in Pitstone at the estate that had been given to the abbey, and stayed for five weeks, during which time he held parliament in Ashridge. His stay caused great inconvenience to the local inhabitants of the village who were legally obliged to keep the king and his court. Hand painted kitchen

It was described in a Victorian gazetteer by John Marius Wilson as “7 miles in length and 1 in breadth. Post-town, Tring. Houses, 109. The property is divided among a few.”. Its area dropped between 1851 and 1891 from the said number acres to 1,644. The number of houses rose most steeply in the 1950s, from 169 to 252. Kitchen cabinet painter Pitstone Buckinghamshire

The kitchen was a vinyl wrap and also had a very light texture. A thorough clean down and also a light abrade was enough to prepare all surfaces. Kitchen cabinet painter

I used a high build adhesion primer to achieve good grip on that initial layer. This also provides a good colour base for the topcoats. Likewise, a 10% sheen which is equivalent to an eggshell finish was used to complete. 

To sum up Kitchen cabinet painter Pitstone Buckinghamshire

All the finishing was by brush. Furthermore, this is a question I often get asked and furthermore is the biggest misconception people have by brushing is “will you see any brush marks on the kitchen doors”

The products along with the tools that I use allow a flawless finish. It is also very difficult to actually see it has been brushed.
