Painted kitchen cabinet with a clock
This horological post is about Mark Nash customising a painted kitchen cabinet with a clock. It was a complementary finishing touch to a hand painted kitchen he transformed recently. And is a continuation of a theme on Traditional Painter about painted furniture with a difference.
A clock would be nice!
Mark covers the M4 corridor into W London hand painting kitchens and furniture all day every day.
As Mark explained,
“The kitchen was installed 15 years ago and the lady of the house mentioned a clock. She commented, some Roman numerals would be nice.
The rest is history”
Mark has a few artisanal tricks up his sleeve, from traditional book-binding to furniture restoration. He was therefore not fazed by the client’s hopeful mention of custom fitting a clock with roman numerals.
A wall clock installed in a painted kitchen cabinet makes such a difference.
Every room needs a focal point. In a kitchen it is usually a big stove or over-mantle that is front and centre and captures your eye. Mark used his horology skills, fitting the motor & clock face.
