Hand painted Oriental Cabinets

We don’t just paint kitchens! I was asked to paint these oriental style cabinets for a client. They chose black and I think it suits the cabinets really well. I finished them with Helmi 30 (all brush finished not sprayed). It was a nice change from painting kitchens.

Christmas kitchen

Happy Christmas!

Happy Christmas and New Year to all my clients, and here’s to a more peaceful 2021.

Transformed solid oak kitchen

Solid oak kitchen given a makeover

Subtle pink kitchen

Summer pink

Just finished this nice little kitchen in West Lothian. Its a foil wrapped kitchen, with cornice and lighting pelmet removed. It was prepared and painted in white, then the wall cabinets with the base cabinets were finished in Farrow&ball Middleton pink. The knobs and draw pulls are brand new brushed copper and the worktops are going to be updated.
