    I completed this little kitchen just before Christmas and I completely forgot to take the Before pictures :facepalm:
    It was originally a light oak shaker kitchen.
    Re-drilled and replaced all the handles with a more modern style. (previously those long chrome bar handles).

    Walls are BM's Grey Owl (OC-52) in Regal Select Matt and the kitchen was done in North Sea (CC-932, really liked this blue!) with Scuff-X Eggshell.
    All done with the Graco GX21FF, 310FF tips.

    Look good that mate, the dark blue seems popular at the moment.

    Nice work Tony, must have done about 6 kitchens in similar colour over last two years. Always amazes me how out of thousands of shades people pick the same ones over and over. I guess fashion more important than personal taste..?

    Thanks all. They were really happy with it all. :doff:

    Almost all of it came out even the side panel to the left of the fridge. The kickboards and the pelmet were good to go too. The only bits that stayed were the small panels either side of the extractor, the side panel next to the ovens and the long panel where the stools are.

    @Gazza - Yes the blues are popular. I think 75% of the ones I did last year were blue of some description.

    @greenbank - I've done some where they dark blue just doesn't work (well from my point of view) but they look at kitchens on Pinterest etc and they go with it.

    @Marylee - Yup, it sure is a lovely blue. Not sure it went so well with Gray Owl but they liked the combo.

    That’s interesting. Can I ask you - did you find Gray Owl looked more grey on some walls and more blue on others?

    It was almost a greeny blue in some light, but that could be down to the downlighters giving off a yellow hue. In natural lite it looked more grey.

    Thanks for that - I keep gathering info on it.

    Some people see in their room as ‘just grey’,
    others see it as having moments of green
    and another group see it as down-right blue.

    From what you describe, I think they are blessed with pretty balanced lighting.
    Definitely one for testing in situ.

    As always, @RonyT :notworthy:

    Even the walls and lid sprayed?

    Thanks :doff:

    Everything else was done old school. Too much masking up to and would have left the kitchen unusable until completed if I had sprayed.
