Julie and Paul had been searching for a hand painted kitchen specialist Preston Lancashire. Looking on the web they found my website and had a good look through it.
It always helps that I carry round a painted sample to show the finish as well as the durability. This is important because use the wrong product and you will regret it as kitchens are designed to be maintenance free. We use a hard wearing waterborne enamel. This is extremely tough and kind to our environment unlike any oil based paint.
Their kitchen was a very nice hand built Oak one with a very nice island finished in Aubergine. As this was a solid colour it just looked out of place with the Oak. With the fitting of the island it was enhanced with some beautiful granite which coordinated with the Aubergine. I priced the kitchen up as well as discussing the work top, I suggested giving it a washed look to tone it down from the Oak. With it all priced up I was booked there and then to paint it, all we needed to do was pick the colour. Looking through the colours that would work, Skimming Stone toned very well.
Let The Work Begin
The jobs all run like clockwork these days as it has become routine. Firstly removing all the hardware, then thoroughly cleaning & degreasing followed by a rinse with clean water. This is all allowed to dry before covering every surface with protection to avoid any accidents plus no need for sheets as they are just a slip hazard. Next its all sanded to etch the surface so the high adhesion primers key.
The primer flows out beautifully flat and it is just right for the first of the two top coats.
