Hand painted furniture in Whitehaven, Cumbria

Kitchen cabinet painter Whitehaven Workington Cumbria

This is a short blog By Mark McCarthy, HPKUK kitchen and furniture painter covering Cumbria.

I was approached by regular clients of mine Roger & Christine for whom I had previously worked for. They had various items of pine furniture that they wanted painted along with some other decoration to their home. I provided a detailed quote after discussing colour schemes etc which was duly accepted. The work involved quite a lot of disruption to their home but they were going on holiday for two weeks so they left me to get on with the work whilst they were away. 

After thoroughly sanding and cleaning the furniture it was primed using my favourite shellac based primer. This was allowed to dry before more sanding in preparation for the top coats.Kitchen cabinet painter Whitehaven Workington Cumbria

There are many benefits in using this type of adhesion primer. The main one being the grip you get on a difficult surface. Another benefit is the stain blocking properties of this primer.

The furniture was then painted in a subtle Matt finish in a specialist furniture paint which was mixed by my supplier in Farrow & Ball ” Wimborne White”.

The result was a beautiful contemporary look which looks very nice against the lovely red wall paint.Kitchen cabinet painter Whitehaven Workington Cumbria
