Mark Wilkinson oak kitchen refurbished and painted – 2
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.
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.
The colour chosen was Zoffany Harbour Grey, and this morning that became Zoffany Umber Light. Thanks for a sudden colour change, then!!
Anyway, mini roller & 1 inch purdy & roller tray, small detailing brush. Onward.
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.
Please share it on Twitter, Facebook, or print it out for reference. Thanks.
