This was a newly installed shaker style kitchen, I hand painted for a long established local kitchen company Osborne of Ilkeston, the project was situated in an old Manor House on the outskirts of Sutton Coldfield.
Osborne of Ilkeston have been producing quality bespoke kitchens and furniture for over 30 years locally and throughout the UK. The Managing Director Paul Osborne (Oz) has a reputation of being a tough task master, as you would expect but equally very fair providing your producing the quality and service he expects on every commissioned project completed. As always the kitchen was made and fitted to (Oz’s) exacting high standards which sets a precedence for each and every trade to follow!
Jersey’s Celebrity Chef Shaun Rankin was so happy with his new kitchen that he actively endorses Osborne furniture. He has even been known to cook a meal and demonstrate all the functions of the kitchen to new owners. Paul (Oz) will only employ highly skilled craftsman in the Osborne factory and on his jobs, the “that will do” attitude is not good enough, you have to keep focused and strive for perfection, however the results are very rewarding and most satisfying.
The main kitchen was painted in an equivalent colour to Farrow & Ball Pavilion Grey and the island unit in an equivalent to F&B Brassica, the finish is made by (Tikkurila) my go to kitchen paint, a highly durable matt finish supplied direct by my Specialist Paint supplier.
Its not unusual during my kitchen painting travels to come across a bespoke kitchen originally made and fitted by Osborne of Ilkeston, I recently hand painted an oak kitchen in Stapleford, Nottingham that was still going strong some 20 years later and have completed several other Osborne kitchens recently, which you can read about here.
