    Just finished a kitchen for a lovely lady down in Winchester, she told me she liked "wacky Colours" and wanted her kitchen to be fun !!

    I had to replace a few hinges and also got rid of the two metal wine racks, I cut and fitter two shelves instead so she could put out her cook books and of course fitted the copper handles :shocked:

    All done using @BenjaminMooreUK wonderfull Stix primer and Scuff-x eggshell

    So here are a few before and after photos.

    Colours were, Sea Shell Pink and Cherry Wine .

    Like with all photos, it looks a lot brighter and a tad more colourful when standing in the room, with or without sunglasses on :cool:

    Lovely work as always mate.

    I like the pink but struggling with the cherry... love units in burgundy reds though.

    How light do you go on the sanding of the wrapped units? Machine or hand ?

    They are speakers mate for playing some banging tunes :mj:

    Having done an identical kitchen 3 doors down last year, I soon learned that 240 grit was as course as you could go :blush: , to be honest a vinyl wrap is so thin even with 240 you can rub through very easily, a foil wrap on the other hand will take 180 pad no problem, all done by hand.

    Nice work @Dellboy ! Very.. vibrant! :scratchhead:

    What does your ‘sheeting up’ look like? Lining paper on floor and worktop? And do you mask up the inside of the carcasses and just do that front edge?
    TIA:thumbup:

    @PhillyThePainter

    I normally run some lining paper or Proplex floor protector on the floor, tucked under the units once the plinths have come off.

    As to worktops, I use clean plastic backed dust sheets or gripper sheets, I use to use paper but found customers would ruin it overnight and was fed up re-doing it or cutting up sheets of Proplex to fit.

    I only paint the front edge of units, so no need to mask up.
