Hand painted kitchen Buckinghamshire – Chalfont St Giles
This past week, Traditional Painter Mark Nash has hand-painted a 14-year old lacquered oak kitchen in the Buckinghamshire village of Chalfont St Giles. He used Tikkurila primer and Feelings semi matt paint.
Structurally, the kitchen is in very good condition still. It was well fitted all those years ago, but aesthetically, the kitchen looks a little tired and dated.
To remedy this and save the owner many thousands on a new kitchen, Mark has specified a Tikkurila paint system
As ever, it is all about the preparation, attention to detail and a superb application technique, all of which Mark has mastered, especially with Tikkurila paints.
Day 3 of the kitchen in Chalfont St Giles
This is day 3 with everything prepped, primed and some undercoating underway.
And the finished feature kitchen on Day 5.
The Feelings Furniture paint is available from Holmans in Swindon. The speciality Finnish paint is a water-borne system with all the advantages of quick drying, low odour and easy clean up. It can be accurately mixed to any colour.
Using Tikkurila paint
When Mark was painting the kitchen cabinets, there was a group of painters at the house dealing with the general decorating. They were suitably impressed by the standard of his work, and are going to be buying some Tikkurila paint, but as Mark tweeted
Buying the paint won’t do it, it will help, but it’s the application that counts.
At Traditional Painter we are happy to share our secrets, and here Mark shows how to achieve the optimum “Tikkurila look”
This is a fuller explanation of Mark Nash painting Feelings Furniture Paint but as the site painters may find out, it comes with a learning curve.
If you are looking for inspiration, here are a few more examples of kitchens painted by Mark, as well as others completed by the Traditional Painters I am happy to recommend around the UK.
