Hand painted Maple kitchen in Walgrave, Northamptonshire

Many enquiries that drop into my email inbox are to re paint wooden kitchens. One of the denser woods is maple as the grain is very tight. This is a smooth wood and paints really well.

A lady in Walgrave, Northamptonshire, which is not far from where I live rang enquiring about a new look for her cabinets. Her kitchen had taken on an orange appearance. It was also quite overbearing as it looked quite dark.

This reduces the amount of disruption. also the kitchen can still be functioning as normal. I taped up and filled the fixed items on the first day, this was just to make a head start on the frames. Kitchen cabinet painter Walgrave Northamtonshire Northants

Once the doors were back to the workshop, I started with a good clean down and a sand to provide a mechanical adhesion for the primer. Preparation is key on hand painting any type of furniture! Often rushed or worse just side stepped. These were meticulously sanded with my Festool set up using varying grades of grit to achieve the desired level of prep. Kitchen cabinet painter Walgrave Northamtonshire Northants

As you can see by the above photo the results speak for themselves. Bright and clean new cabinets. A fantastic new look to a once tired kitchen. These transformations never fail to surprise me. Another benefit from doing this is the savings made in your pocket. To replace the average kitchen these days can be in excess of £15k. This method is quicker and without the upheaval of having the kitchen removed. Kitchen cabinet painter Walgrave Northamtonshire Northants
