    A lot of the cabinet doors and kick boards were blown, through water damage, when I priced this job up, I thought I had my work cut out, but, a good sanding, through the grits, I managed to flatten them all to near perfect finish, well chuffed with it.

    Ceiling in white Tikkurila AR2 sprayed, walls rolled in white Tikkurila Optiva 5 and the feature wall in Tikkurila ( F&B colour) Pitch Blue 220.

    All cabinets was primed in white, using Sayerlack AUO474 with the Sayerlack catalyst @2% of the volume of primer, I used a half mask, and had no taste or smell of the catalyst.

    The primer dried quickly so I was able to put multiple coats on to build up, after each coat, I de-nibbled with 400 grit.

    All cabinets were completely sprayed inside to, as per customers request.

    Final top coats were the Farrow and Ball colour, London Stone 6, made up with Sayerlack AT990 30% ( Satinwood) and the Sayerlack cross link, @2%

    Multiple coats sprayed and again, de-nibbed with 400 grit. The finish was super hard, yet really soft, like silk to the touch.

    I used the Graco 9.5 with No4 needle, I found after spraying, with the paint still wet, Meths was great to get it off, each time I sprayed, because of the catalyst and the cross link, I used a new flex liner each time.

    The door frames were stained wood, and after preparing them, I used Tikkurila white Miranol ( solvent )

    @Daf just been and looked at a kitchen today myself with some blown MDF door which also had a factory veneer I think which had obviously broken down on the edging which had allowed moisture in. But what was your process for repairing the blown MDF?

    I asked Lee at Movac, as I wanted to go the air assisted route, but he told me to use the hvlp, he did say why, but i can’t remember, I think I was, very very drunk at the time.

    Hello Gazza.
    I don’t know if the kitchen you just looked at is like the one I just did? a lot of the doors were like this, the rails were also bulging and blown at the bottom, and the kick boards were water damaged, I did actually priced it to drill out the bulge, and the use the repair care.

    Once all the doors were off, I looked more carefully and noticed it was blown, but the fibres were expanded but not rotted away, or soft, so I got the Mirka and used 120 grit all the way to 400 grit, it took a while, as i didn’t want the primer to show a ring in the repair.

    Perseverance on the 400 grit and it flattened great, so I ended up, doing all the blown doors this way, and I was very pleased with the end results.

    Have you got repair care? If so, I would definitely go that route, if it’s badly damaged, as you can profile the door or edges and have plenty of time to do it, I was going to use the 16 hour repair care, just for the extra time in getting a perfect finish, and I’ve found it’s nice to sand as it’s not fast curing and has a good extended time, and the sanding will bring it to absolutely perfection.

    I would definitely see ( if you get the job) sand first like I did, and hopefully, you won’t have to go the repair care routine. Don’t use 2 part filler, as the doors banging over time, may cause the filler to pop out.
    Best of luck

    Cheers mate, don't have repair care, but from what you have said, its not rotten and fine sand maybe a good option. What if anything would or did you use to treat or prime bare mdf fibres after sanding?

    Just sprayed Sayerlack AUO 474 it’s absolutely perfect for bare MDF, just sand it with 320/400 so it’s smooth to start, Sayerlack primer, and de nib, and spray again, you can get a edge, so smooth, you wouldn’t even know it’s MDF.

    Nice one Daf. I’ll be pestering you in the near future for sound advice. As much as i love hand painting kitchens and i get asked specifically for hand painted, i will be looking into spraying them too once i convince people it’s the “ way to go” in my humble opinion. Top work there sir given what you were up against :thumbsup:
