Hand painted country kitchen cabinets are one of my favourite styles of kitchen to paint. I really do enjoy this type of work and get a great sense of satisfaction upon completion.

Osborne will personalise your kitchen to your specific requirements

Bespoke kitchen maker Osborne of Ilkeston recommended me to paint their latest installation. A hand painted country kitchen, set in a lovely old cottage up in the Derbyshire hillside.

Osborne designers utilise every bit of space

Osborne’s design team utilise every inch of space to help clients get the most from their kitchens. This one had a tall bank of units to one side incorporating; the fridge, oven, microwave and 2 large pull out larder units. A great space saving idea!

Once all the prep work is done, such as filling small nail holes and caulking all the joints in between the carcasses and cabinets. We then give the factory applied primer a good rub down with a fine abrasive to ensure the very best adhesion.

The paint finish has a silky smooth almost chalky feel but very durable

The paint we use is waterborne and is both durable and wipe able, it dries very quickly but doesn’t reach its full hardness for several days. Once fully cured it leaves a lovely soft smooth, almost chalky type finish.

Paint colours are mixed to the equivalent of Dovetail and Brassica by Farrow and Ball

The paint colours were matched by specialist paint supplier Holman Paints. They mix the paint into similar colours to Dovetail for the main units and Brassica for the canopy/mantle.

    Hi Russ,

    I came across your website online and was wondering whether you would be able to provide a very rough estimate for painting a kitchen up in Sheffield? We are about to buy a house and are trying to put some figures to the work that needs to be done. The existing kitchen is fairly large and we would like all the doors and draws painting along with removal, filling in and replacement of all the handles.

    Sorry i can’t add any pictures for you but hopefully this is enough information for you to provide a ball-park figure.

    Could you also give an idea of how long it would be likely to take?

    Thank you
