Painted kitchen with some wood left

I was in Edinburgh this week, working locally for the first time in a while. My clients wanted to keep some of the wood in their kitchen, but also wanted to brighten the room up. I suggested painting the ceiling, doors and drawer fronts, which really transformed the room. Here are some before and after photos.

Transformed solid oak kitchen

Solid oak kitchen given a makeover

This was a perfectly good solid limed oak kitchen in need of new life. The doors were removed, completely sanded down then painted in ‘Tikkurila Helmi 10’ mixed with ‘Farrow & Ball’ railings. New handles were fitted to complete the new look. My client is delighted with the result. A complete transformation in one week.

Country Kitchen – Step by Step

Sometimes the fact I need to travel over an hour each day to work is a privilege when the view from your workplace is like this. This 7 year old kitchen was in reasonably good condition, although the colour was no longer to my clients taste. All the ironmongery was removed and cleaned of any previous paint.

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.

First Post Lockdown Kitchen

I’ve just completed my first kitchen since restrictions lifted here. Ths second lockdown has felt even longer than the first for some reason, and I’m pleased to be back. What could be a more fitting colour for a spring kitchen than this lovely spring green? I hand painted this kitchen in Currie, Edinburgh, giving it a new lease of life. …

Painting my own kitchen

Due to finding myself in lockdown again I decided it was a good opportunity to carry out the re-painting of our own kitchen. This has been in the planning stages for quite some time, we had planned on replacing the worktops but my fitter couldn’t manage to carry this out pre Christmas and since then we’ve been unable to obtain …

Hand painted kitchen

Paint don’t scrap!

I painted this Edinburgh kitchen recently. The owners moved into this house, and decided it would be wasteful to replace the 14 year old kitchen even though they disliked the style. I painted it using Farrow & Ball’s Wimborne White and changed the handles on the units. The Edinburgh customer called it ‘a transformation’ and commented how fresh and modern …
