Pine Kitchen Makeover
I was recently emailed photos of a customers gloomy 1980’s pine kitchen. To save on an expensive replacement they were considering refurbishing their existing solid pine cupboards. The customers arranged for replacement beech worktops and sink. Cabot Decorating completed the kitchen makeover with a traditional hand painted finish. Paint coatings usually fail due to poor preparation. That’s why the right preparation is key to professional hand painted finishes especially when painting old kitchens.
The Right Preparation
The kitchen was washed down to remove any traces of grease that could effect paint adhesion. Thoroughly sanded down with two coats of Zinsser BIN primer applied to the pine knots. Cover Stain a fast drying high adhesion primer was used to provide a tough substrate for painting. Up to three coats of Almond White Dulux Trade Eggshell paint were applied. Carefully rubbing down between coats with fine grade sandpaper. Wiping down surfaces with tack clothes to remove any any dust is essential. When the painting was finished it was allowed to hardened for a few days before refitting the doors, drawers and new handles to finish off this pine kitchen makeover.
