    Thank you chaps :thumbsup:

    @Eress well the paint system was simple; stix and scuff x, both sprayed extremely well. I really love the scuffx I think this may be my new go to wood paint over advance. Granted I wasn't using white but the obliteration was superb, I'd genuinely say one coat was passable, though I did opt for four tops on the front

    I removed all doors and furniture and made the room into a little booth with plastic draped from the picture rail. Extractor out the window just to help flow.

    spray, sand, clean, repeat :cool:

    What grade did you sand to per coat?
    How many total coats and of what products? Did you keep a record of drying times and overcoat times?
    Thanks.
    Looks really nice btw

    thank you all so much :thumbsup: really appreciate the kind words :smile:

    @RonyT long story short all the interior had 2 top coats which look excellent but I really wanted to get the flats on the exterior as smooth as possible especially as its directly next to a huge sash window. I didn't feel the fibres were smooth enough after 2 coats (probably were!) and as I was doing my coats in rounds of two, the front got 4 total top coats. Finely sanded between each. Probably OTT but I don't mind :rolleyes:

    Looks bang on @zachary :thumbsup: can't wait to shoot Scuffx myself after seeing your results.
    How did you mask the hinges and did you spray vertically for the fronts?

    @3 spires thank you very much :winky:

    I removed all the doors and took all handles and hinges off. Lent the doors against a back wall and sprayed vertically one by one - by the time I'd given all the doors and the unit a coat I could turn the doors around and hit the other side.

    As I was to be painting the walls, very little masking was needed. I draped plastic off the back wall as to not make a ton of mess and I used 12" paper around the unit itself with a 10mm gap to emulsion onto for perfect lines.

    Sounds like the perfect method and it does look class also nice to see bold colour choices on furniture was that your choice or customers?.:thumbup:

    @3 spires thank you - yes its a lovely colour, I had pushed for a good grey and gave them some of the BM booklets and they finally decided on this. Walls were finished in Regal Matte 'Intense White' which made for a great contrast.

    Snap of the walls and desk (finished in the same colour as the wardrobe):
