Plain English kitchen repainted by Mark Nash
Traditional Painter Mark Nash battles the hot weather in style, tackling a stunning Plain English kitchen repainted and beautified in this beautiful country home. Read on for the pink reference!
This week hasn’t felt like work at all (despite being inside while the temperature outside has been nudging 30 degrees)…the reason being, I have had the luxury of painting a superbly crafted Plain English kitchen, using great products.
Keeping the ambient temperature good for painting
I recently invested in two cooling systems, one being a Klarstein air cooler, which is very good indeed.
The indoor heat and humidity were no problem at all, and the oil paint behaved itself perfectly.
Re-paint a Plain English kitchen
The kitchen was a deep grey which the client wanted to brighten and modernize with F&B’s ‘Blackened’ — an ideal challenge for a combination of Tikkurila’s Otex primer followed by two coats of Empire.
Before and after
The old shade was obliterated to my complete satisfaction as you can see from the photographs.
About that pink
My client opted for one of her kitchen stools to be painted in a B&Q shade of ‘Playful Pink’, exactly colour matched for me in Tikkurila’s rock solid oil based Empire eggshell by Holman Specialist Paints in Swindon.
It worked a treat in a house full of boys!
About the kitchen
For any kitchen painter who enjoys his or her craft as much as I and my Traditional Painter colleagues do, the Plain English option is a joy. This is one of the best kitchens you will ever see, in terms of craftsmanship. The clean, practical lines of the cupboard and drawer fronts together with the strong and simple fittings – plus a top class paint finish, of course – makes for a kitchen made in heaven.
