Completed this one for some friends just before Xmas. Units, cabinet in corner, table and chairs.
one or two more...
Lovely work, Got to be happy with that! Some nice features on the kitchen that look really well painted.
Looks good !
Really enjoyed this job! Customers have been friends for too, too many years to mention but this is the first job we've done for them. Using great paint goes a long way to getting it right, hard work also but the look on mates Mrs face as it all went back together was worth all the hard work. I was really pleased how the drab old fashioned table and chairs came out.
Looks great. Well done. Paints used? Hours spent ?
Units were Scuff-X eggshell mostly through the XVLP but odd bits brushed. Ceiling BM ceiling paint, walls above dado rail, BM Aura matte. Dado rail, walls below and wood trim Aura eggshell. Table and chairs Osmo clear satin and BM Aura satin.
Lots of hours!! Can't actually remember.....
Great looking job there munter. About to try Scuff-x eggshell on a job so any tips tips appreciated.
Nothing to suggest netta, great stuff, say no more.......
Btw..... Munter? what the......
Thought more polite than fat boy
Currently fluctuating between 11 st and 11 st 5lbs I'll have you know, my body is a temple!
looks a good job there
Looks so much brighter ! New kitchen for half the price .
What primer went over oak presses?
Did you take doors off site to spray?
Tomcio. I had hoped to use BM stix as primer but it wasn't stopping some bleed from the prepped oak, ended up using BIN instead which is messy but it's never let me down before.
Waynetta. Doors and pretty much anything else that could be removed , all taken home and sprayed in my garage. I've done this a few times now and have got a system of working that I'm happy with and seems to work well.
Cheers RonyT, They looked at changing it ands asked the company that supplied it originally to give them some prices. The guy could remember supplying it, his comment about them not getting as good a quality replacement kind of put them off fitting a new one. They called me to have a look and give them a rough idea of what it could cost to paint it. My final bill for the kitchen and general redecoration was about a quarter of what a replacement was going to cost. She's happy 'cos it looks great, he's happy 'cos he's not been robbed!!
Lovely job ,and fair play to the kicthen guy for saying what he did
Very impressive! Did you put BIN through your XVLP or roll it?
No, the BIN was the two of us brushing it, don't fancy having the faff of cleaning up after ......
Tbf, my mate got them to fit the new tops, supply new sink and new appliances.
Looks superb mate
