    From a drab looking cream coloured lichen to a more up to date look.

    Benjamin Moore Scuff-x Eggshell in Hudson Bay CC-810 on the bottom, Stone White 2120-70 on the top and Aura Chantilly Lace in the walls.

    REALLY like the off/grey white of Stone White !

    New handles etc hadn’t turned up so couldn’t fit them for the finish shot.

    Lovely work Rony! Did you spray or hand paint the frame? Re the colour, the creamy greys are popular at the mo. I’m doing one now in Edgecomb grey, very similar to yours.

    Thank you :doff:


    Thank you :doff:
    Frames around the doors n draws (which I’d completely forgot to price in:facepalm:) were sprayed offsite along with most of the kitchen. (208 and 308 FFLP tips)
    8 side panels, the insides of the glass units and a few other bits were done by hand in situ.

    Stone Grey isn’t really creamy, it’s almost like pumice but lighter with a teeny tiny hint of blue.

    Thanks Barry

    The kitchen itself took 3 days including lid, walls and tuning trim from stained wood to white. Approx 1 day to prep and hand paint all the bits left. 5 days to take apart, prep and spray and refit. I had my nephew in as a lackey for 3 days just helping out

    Looks really really nice there !


    Just a shame these kitchen designers and fitters don’t come up with something better than dust traps on the top of the units.

    Nice work:thumbsup:.

    Out of curiosity, how come you don't spray the side panels etc? Is it too much hassle to mask?

    Thank you Grumps.

    yes that’s always baffled me. The crud up there especially around the cooker with the grease is unreal, even in the cleanest of kitchens :spew:


    Thank you.

    Pretty much just that reason. If the house was empty or the kitchen wasn’t being used I would probably spray it as I could leave the masking until done. If you zoom in on the cooker, there are two pillars either side which would mean the cooker should have to be masked.

    hahaha, thank you Keef

    It wasn’t without a few headaches as you know but thank you Boss.

    Funny thing about the colours, I chose them as they couldn’t decide ! They really loved it.
