Hand Painted Kitchen Southwold
Jump to PhotosThis particular kitchen project was set just outside the extremely picturesque coastal village of Southwold.
I was first contacted about this kitchen repaint last October, just before my clients were setting about remodelling the house layout.
On first inspection, I noted that the kitchen doors were of a vinyl wrap variety which has been painted by the previous house owners.
The finish on the doors left a lot to be desired as it was of a textured roller finish which had taken some sort of stickiness to the touch, this was not to be a straight forward prep session!
After covering and protecting all the Worktops and flooring I set about cleaning the units, for this I used a strong solution of Fluxaf Pro Clean and Indsa Green Scouring pads, once everything had been degreased I removed all the doors and drawers as they were heading back to the workshop for their prep.
My trusty stead by my side ( Festool RTS 400 and Midi extractor ) I set about sanding all the static carcasses, once the sanding was complete I had a little making good to some of the cupboard edges, this in the first place was filled by using a 2 part filler and then once sanded back a small amount of Pro Decors lightweight filler to finish.
Once back in the workshop I set about sanding the doors, I started the process as normal with 120 mirka abranet pads on my festool but was soon confronted with a sticky blue mess on the base pad!
It was time to bring out the big guns!!
With my Metabo random orbital sander and a 80 grit pad also came a very careful sanding process as the edges of the vinyl wrap would soon be exposed and very vulnerable.
Again in places where the wrap was damaged I cut away the loose edge and applied a 2 part filler which allowed me to reform the edge.
The next few days consisted of adhesion primers, primer undercoats and one top coat, this would then allow me a final top coat en-situ once back on site.
On return to my clients house all the static carcasses underwent the same process as the doors and drawers had undergone, then all the doors were rehung and finally top coated, as always my paint of choice is Alcro's acrylic enamel which this time had been mixed to their equivalent of day room yellow.
As you can see the results are stunning and the client was totally thrilled with the whole process and the finished look.
