Hand Painted Kitchen Dereham
Jump to PhotosDereham - the heart of Norfolk
The origins of the town date back to before the Saxon era. Its own Saxon Saint Withburga founded a monastery and she is commemorated most visibly in the town sign which straddles the Market Place entrance to the High Street, and at her original grave, now marked by a spring, which can be found in the Churchyard. Many of the town’s ancient buildings were destroyed in a fire in the 17th century. However, the magnificent church of St Nicholas with its unusual campanile tower and the nearby Bishop Bonner’s cottage (which is now a museum) are places of interest which survived the fires of 1581 and 1679. Several imposing Georgian buildings grace the middle of the town. The town centre is a bustling place, with the weekly Tuesday and Friday markets on Market Place. As well as a Farmers’ Market which takes place on the second Saturday of the Month.
And this is where you find FX Decor undertaking their latest kitchen renovation,
Richard was contacted by Mr & Mrs G back in early September and was asked if he could possibly transform their orangey, dated kitchen?
As you can see from the before photo this light oak kitchen was still in very good order, albeit an odd shade of orange !
Within hours of being on site and all removable components safely loaded into the van, the preparation process began, degreasing all the surfaces is so important and a 50/50 mix of Fluxaf pro clean was used with the help of a coarse green scourer.
The Festool RTS 400 then ensures all surfaces are properly sanded and with its second to none dust extraction system the mess is kept to the minimum.
Once everything was then wiped down with a methylated spirit cloth, the first of two coats of adhesion primer were applied, later on in the day a further coat of primer undercoat was brushed to all the static components.
The following day the same procedure was undertaken back at the workshop on all the doors, drawers and kick boards all with the same amount of care and attention to detail.
Once back on site, a further two top coats were applied to all the static components and then every door and drawer was rehung and positioned in its place.
A final top coat was the applied to the doors etc and once this had dried all the new handles were fitted.
As always my paint of choice is Alcro's Servalac Aqua 10 and this particular colour was their equivalent of Chalky down 6
Needless to say Mr & Mrs G were absolute delighted with the finished result "thank you so much for the fantastic job you did for us, many many thanks for your excellent work! "
