Without doubt one of the flagstone kitchens from Mark Wilkinson that I will never tire of painting is the Cooks Kitchen. I have painted many of these over the years, when I used to contract to Mark Wilkinson and they are an absolute pleasure to work on. beautifully designed and made that suits many home styles.

This particular kitchen was fitted approx 15 years ago and was in need of a bit of care and attention and furthermore the Oak breakfast bar on the island needed attention too.

Unmistakeably Mark Wilkinson!

The kitchen had certainly lasted well and was originally painted with MWF satin. A  similar product was firstly decided and secondly a colour which is 3/4 shades darker was picked too. The usual protection was also applied to the floor and worktops and the whole kitchen was prepped and sanded using the dust free Festool setup. specialist kitchen painter Hertfordshire

An essential part of my kit as it keeps dust down to an absolute minimum, meaning less disruption for the home owners.

As you can see by the image above, the brushed finish with Helmi 10 provides a stunning and lasting finish. The Helmi 10 gives a very subtle sheen, almost an eggshell finish! Tool of choice on this project was a Corona Archer.

Adjusting the doors and drawers

Several adjustments where also made as a couple of doors and drawers where binding. The oversized cooks knobs where removed, cleaned and re fitted on completion. The oak top on the island and window cill which had several candle burns and had become very sticky was sanded back and refinished with Osmo topoil (Natural).

Overall, a fantastic kitchen given a new lease of life, the clients were thrilled with the results, they have now booked to have their wardrobes painted later on in the year. The utility and also the chairs will also be painted in a few weeks. Mark Wilkinson kitchen painter Essendon

On seeing the results of the island, the client asked me if I could have a go at the table. This unfortunately had been ruined by a leak. I sanded it back and re oiled with osmo hard wax poly oil. This made a huge improvement and the table was brought back to a fantastic smooth finish.
