Neil Callender is a traditional painter specialising in hand painted kitchens. For a client in Hampshire he prepared and painted new MDF and tulipwood cabinets using tried and tested techniques, finishing with Little Greene oil eggshell paint.

To prepare and prime this kitchen, Neil used Mirka dustless sanding, Abranet abrasives, and Zinsser Coverstain.

    I have four unpainted Ramin louvre doors I want painted. Can you spray paint them both sides in satin finish if I deliver to you and what would it cost please?

    The doors wach measure 2’3″ x 6′ 6″.

    Hi I have kitchen doors that need repainting. Before I DIY I thought I’d see how much a professional spray job is to see if it is worth the investment. We have 7 base unit doors, 7 drawer fronts and 4 half width wall cupboard doors. The cabinets don’t require painting. The cupboard doors are yellow wood and are moulded, we want a taupe type of colour to tone in the beige work tops and cream tiles. Many thanks.
