Mark Wilkinson oak kitchen refurbished and painted – 2

Listed under Blog, hand-painted kitchen, Mark Nash, preparation, tikkurila Posted Feb 22 2014

This is the second day of Mark Nash’s project: a 20 year old Mark Wilkinson oak kitchen refurbished and painted.

Have decided to paint this kitchen in two parts for various reasons.
Yesterday was a good day with a fair amount of preparation completed.

ryobi detail sander A few rough bits needed a little more attention and sanding, so out with my detailed sander connected to my Dyson slim vacuum, job done in a short space of time.

Away with the preparation bits & pieces, and out with my favourite high adhesion, high build coloured primer with tremendous obliteration properties ” Otex” manufactured by Tikkurila, purchased from Holmans.

Otex from Holmans

The colour chosen was Zoffany Harbour Grey, and this morning that became Zoffany Umber Light. Thanks for a sudden colour change, then!!

Cornice and carcass primed first, 7 hours later the Otex drying nicely flatting out beautifully. Despite the substrate being stained here and there, and bare wood in places, and feathered varnish in others, it’s all brought into one, superb.

The other painters on site take a look and are amazed at the finish after the application of one coat of primer. The householder in charge of the complete estate requests a quotation for his kitchen. Result after one coat of primer. All going very well.

    That looks good Mark. One thing I’ve been meaning to ask – some kitchen painters seem to prefer taking the doors off, and others keep them on. Do you always keep them on? Any advantages or disadvantages of either approach? Any thoughts from other kitchen painters on here?
