    Another one!

    Ceiling in Tikkurila AR2, walls mixed in Tikkurila F&B Cooking Apple Green 32, tiles mixed in F&B Cooking Apple Green 32 by Sayerlack, all kitchen cabinets were sprayed in Sayerlack 30% white.
    The double pantry door was in stained brown, now white Sayerlack 30%
    My racking was buckling under the weight of all the doors and drawers, it was actually leaning a little and you could see it wobble, a gentile knock, and it would have gone over, thankfully, it didn’t!

    Came out so much better than the pictures.

    On the job, I don’t have a workshop, sadly.

    I spray them, then put a soft dust sheet over the tacking, as the fallout dust just builds up, I sand ( de nib) the lot, which gets rid of any dust and bits.

    Thanks fella, it’s a shame I’m not still in Ongar, otherwise, I would have shown you the ropes, on all the spraying, airless, aaa and hvlp.

    Just a side note, don’t try and cover in one pass, and your halfway there :doff:

    Thank you daf. I’m gonna try and rig up my HVLP today and get some woodwork done, but i can’t use the whip hose as it’s got knackered connections, but I’m optimistic they’ll i get it up and running.
    I’d love someone to teach me the ropes if i could, I’m a good listener :biggrin: Hopefully I’ll hook up with someone more local and offer my services to help, I’d give up a couple of weeks free of charge obviously. Cheers matey, keep up the good work

    Great work. Like the 30% sheen on the cupboards.
    What primers did you use?
  9. Daf

    The Sayerlack primer with the cat added, the final top coats were cross linked too, I used white Sayerlack under the tiles with a little more cat, and same again on top of the tiles, in the 30% sheen

    I find that a very impressive level of finish considering the non-ideal working conditions.

    The dust sheet was covering all the doors and drawers on the rack, as I said, it was really heavy and very hard to push around

    Now they are the pictures I love to see @Daf , the work I progress!:yes:

    The smaller the room the harder the task sometimes!

    How many man hours were you on that one mate?

    Yes, the method to the madness! :biggrin:

    The primer obviously sticks pretty well.

    7 days mate, with the seventh just for 3 hours.
    total 46 hours.

    I didn’t think anyone like “the work in progress” pictures, I’ll put some in next time.

    It was really tight in there, not like the first one shown.

    That’s why I want a bigger extractor, as the dust build up was pronominal!

    Hell yes, when your a sole trader it's a good way to see someone elses way of doing things and sometimes it's a light bulb moment!

    Or be a bitch and moan about their poor working practices!:hysterical:

    46 man hours, seems like good time to me mate.:doff:

    Another cracking job @Daf the finish of that w/b Sayerlack looks beautiful, lovely and flat.

    You must have some very happy customers with that one.

    Yes they were very pleased indeed.

    I did a bathroom for them last year, in the brightest pink possible, but they love it!

    What filler are you using on the kitchen units and doors?
