The first enquiry from my clients about the possibility of hand painting this fantastic solid waxed pine kitchen from Bryan Turner Kitchens came 2/3 years ago and as I was working near by to this little Norfolk village, so I called in on my way home.
Having worked for Bryan Turner for many years, I knew the quality of this kitchen would be first class as it is always, although this was one of the earliest kitchens and had been shared with the family and their 6! Yes 6 St Bernard’s, it was in a excellent condition.
I explained the lengthy preparation process of having to strip all the wax from all surfaces prior to any painting, but ultimately a first class finish was achievable.
Eventually the commencement date arrived and I set to dismantling the kitchen so the preparation process could be undertaken in my workshop. Once all the doors were removed I set to work on the remaining carcasses, this involved methylated sprits and wire wool to remove the last traces of the wax and then followed by a meths wipe down and then the sanding process can begin.
Back in the workshop the same process was undertaken, remarkably after 20 years there was still an awful lot of wax present on most of the doors, so thorough preparation was vital.
The painting process as always started off with 2 coats of adhesion primer, followed by an undercoat primer and then 2 further top coats, this particular project was Becker’s equivalent to Oxford stone.
Once all the painting was completed in the workshop, all the doors were careful wrapped and returned to site.
The same painting process was undertaken on all the carcasses, all the hinges were cleaned, replaced and new door furniture was fitted.
As you can see the transformation is stunning and the clients were absolutely delighted
