  • We are absolutely delighted with the ‘new kitchen’ and are so pleased that we chose this route rather than door or total kitchen replacement. We would recommend that anybody with good quality but tired, shabby looking cabinets have them hand painted, and definitely by you!

    Thanks very much for all your hard work and your help with the rest of the colour scheme.

    Mrs Grain
    Hand Painted Kitchen in Edwalton Nottingham
  • We were totally delighted with the results achieved on our rather dated hand made kitchen cupboards, island unit, large dresser and cooker surround. Russ was always most professional, concientous and passionate, going to great detail at every stage in order to achieve the total transformation of our kitchen following the replacement of all the worktops.The overall result reflected the care and attention to detail taken and even ran over by an extra day to that originally estimated in order to achieve that marvellous ‘finish’. We would not hesitate engaging Russ Pike again for any future projects.

    Again, many thanks Russ for a fantastic result.

  • Just a quick message to thank you soooooo much for all the effort and professionalism you put into making my kitchen look a million dollars. I very much appreciate the care you took and your attention to detail – not to mention you putting up with having me around much of the time.

    I am so glad I found you instead of settling for an everyday painter and decorator. Outstanding! Thank you so much.

  • Many thanks Russ, for a great job on my kitchen. I have had many compliments on my “new” kitchen. My 20 year old hand built kitchen really does look and feel brand new for a fraction of the price of a replacement. Your full decorating service was excellent and reliable, very refreshing to have someone keep all their promises! We’re now settled back in and it’s a joy to cook and entertain, thanks again, Ellen.

    Hand Painted Kitchen & Furniture in Stanton by Bridge, Derbyshire
  • For a fraction of the price of a new kitchen Russ has brought our 30 year old dull pine units into the 21st century! We now have a smart, light kitchen beautifully painted and good as new. Russ is hard working and enthusiastic about his craft, very efficient and professional and always helpful in advising.

    Thoroughly recommend.
