Spray painted kitchen in Warwick
We specialise in hand painted kitchens, but the following is a Spray painted kitchen masterclass from Ron Taylor, Traditional Painter for Warwickshire.
There are so many things that can go wrong when spraying top coats to a showroom quality finish in situ. However, as they say, professionals make their work look so easy.
Below, Ron explains what is going on with this in-frame spray painted kitchen.
Spraying the carcass on its own will require lots of masking of all the cupboard openings. The easiest way to spray an in-frame kitchen:
– Remove the doors and spray the backs to a finish.
– Brush and roll the inner edges to a finish and rehang the doors.
– Mask off the hinge and spray the faces as a solid block.
That’s the short version, a few years of careful study crammed into a few lines!
For the technically minded, he is using the Tecnover tr4000p airless unit with his own set up of hoses and gun and tips. Full details and Ron’s review of the tr4000p.
Spray painted kitchens and furniture
Here is a video of Ron carrying out a demonstration with the world famous Annie Sloan on how to apply her chalk paint by spray to kitchen cabinet doors.
Ron has plenty to say about spraying water based paints to a high standard. Some of his articles like this have been referred to thousands of times by the trade.
Along with Scot Hindley, Ron also taught dozens of Annie Sloan stockists how to spray chalk paint on furniture with an HVLP unit. Their patient and thorough approach overcame all the expected issues of thick paint and low powered spray units. They proved to be natural born teachers.
If you are in the Warwicks Leics area and would like to talk to Ron about painting your kitchen, you can send him your project details via the map widget at the bottom of this page. He can advise on whether spraying or hand painting is most appropriate.
