Materials for hand-painting a kitchen
Compared to most aspects of decorating, there isn’t a lot of bulky kit and equipment needed for this very labour intensive task.
For preparing the workspace, I use masking tape and lining paper. To keep it quick, a tape dispenser is essential, preferably one for each type of tape used.
For cleaning down the grubbiest cabinets, I use a bucket plus rubber sanding block, sponge and automotive wet ‘n dry abrasives.
Once the preparation has been done, it is time to prime and paint and sand and fill and paint and sand some more. These are the sort of products I use when aiming for an oil based eggshell finish.
and that is it. Add in a good vacuum cleaner and that is most of the kitchen painter’s armoury revealed.
Just need to use it all properly and efficiently and you can transform any kitchen or pine dresser….
If using water-based eggshell, it is almost the same kit, except you substitute the Owatrol for Floetrol paint conditioner to help remove brush marks, and you wash your brushes clean every night, so you don’t need a brush keeper vapour box.
Please share it on Twitter, Facebook, or print it out for reference. Thanks.
