Here is the process I used for a recent pine kitchen cupboards spraying transformation in Summerseat, Bury.
The customer was happy with the style and layout of the kitchen but thought that it was time for a new look. However, she wanted to achieve this without going to the considerable expense and upheaval of having a total new kitchen.
She had an idea about what colour she thought she wanted but I left a number of colour charts with her to help her make a final decision. The colour chosen was Farrow and Ball Vert de Terre and I had the specialist paints that I use mixed to this colour.
The first step in the process was to remove all the cupboard doors, drawer fronts, handles and hinges. Everything is numbered/marked so that I can replace them in exactly the same position.
The floor, worktops, walls and ceiling around the kitchen frame were covered/masked off. All the surfaces to be painted were then cleaned, degreased and rinsed off. After a final vacuum and wipe down with a solvent degreaser I then lightly abraded the surfaces using my Festool dust free sanding equipment and Mirka gold hand sanding pads. Further vacuuming and a wipe over with tack rags left the surfaces ready for priming.
Two coats of high adhesion primer followed by two coats of satin were applied. A light sand was carried out between each coat. When completed I removed all the floor/wall protection and masking tape/paper. A final clean down left the frame ready for the completed doors and drawer fronts.
The same process was used to prepare and paint the cupboard doors and drawer fronts in my workshop. Once these were done I returned with them, re-attached the handles (originals painted with black gloss) and then re-fitted the doors and drawer fronts.
As you can see the transformation is dramatic.
Another happy customer!
