Hand painted kitchen Kimbolton: Painted kitchen Cambridgeshire: Andrew Macintosh kitchens: This Andrew Macintosh kitchen was approximately 20 years old and was in need of a complete overhaul. Many of the door hinges had loosened off and some of the drawer runners had dropped.

The ingress of water ingress over the years meant several of the doors had blown. The fact that it was made from a standard mdf didn’t help. Not a water resistant product which works better with kitchen furniture.

The doors were taken back to the workshop. This made the sanding easier as it was on the bench under good lighting which showed a lot of the damage.

The colour was to be kept as close to the original as possible. I found a dulux colour which was very close and had it mixed by Valti in Tikkurila Helmi 30. This is a product that is equivalent to a satinwood finish. As you can see in the photos above there was quite a bit of damage. Doors cleaned down, filled and sanded. They began to look a lot better. The original paint job had very heavy brushmarks. These sanded out using a 120 grade paper attached to the festool sander.

The client on this project had asked if I could do anything with the beech worktops. The tops had a consederable amount of black water stains around the sink and hob. I made no promises but went at them with the festool. I repaired some rotten wood with a natural 2 part filler and applied to applications of Osmo top oil.

“Colour not everybody’s cup of tea”

The colour might not be everybody’s cup of tea. All the adjustments and fixes that I had done meant that everything looked straight and sharp. The Helmi finish also added a touch of luxury to the final finish as it gives a superb smooth satin finish.

All doors completed in the workshop.

I came across Andrew Macintosh kitchens approx 25 years ago when I used to paint Kitchens for another company in Chiswick, London. They have a very good build quality and the classic shaker door that will never look dated.

As you can see, the worktops look as good as new. The Osmo top oil is my go to oil on any worktops as it gives a really good durable finish.
