Hand painted kitchen by Martin Guest
This hand painted kitchen project is a perfect illustration of the work that specialist Traditional painter, Martin Guest regularly carries out on fabulous properties.
The large kitchen extension on this seven bedroomed, Victorian farmhouse is home to a bespoke kitchen, built by James Mayor Furniture (JMF). It was actually designed by James Mayor himself, and installed to his millimetre-perfect ethos.
“I was instructed, to hand paint his creation – the island units in Farrow & Ball’s “Archive”, and all other furniture in Farrow & Ball’s “Ringwold Ground”.
How did that work out?
The specification for tulipwood and MDF luxury kitchen
The furniture, constructed from MDF and Tulip wood, was first primed in Zinsser’s BIN, followed by Farrow & Ball’s Exterior Wood Primer & Undercoat then treated to at least, four coats of Exterior Eggshell.
The paint was applied by Fat Hog Concave Rollers, Dulux Glosser Microfibre rollers and Purdy brushes.
The finish achievable with Farrow and Ball water-borne eggshell is exceptional, and Martin’s work is “flawless”, a testament to his brush skills.
Don’t forget the handles
Handles should never be treated as an afterthought, as they can make and break a painted kitchen.
It is fair to say that the paintwork and JMF’s bespoke handles go hand in hand.
Looking through the extra photos (see this hand painted farmhouse kitchen article by Martin), you can see that the clients now have a kitchen that is not only practical, (finished with exterior grade eggshell) but also looks like it is an original part of this stunning home.
