Way back in May we shared some of the intensive work we had been doing in our kitchen (Part 1). At the time our priority was to get rid of the horrible red/orange tiles that adjourned nearly all the walls. Since then we’ve smoothed the walls, repainted and added shelves to the far end wall (featured here). However, doing all this made us realise how much we disliked the cheap looking wooden doors!
We costed up new doors but there are a fair amount of cupboards in our kitchen and we’d have been looking at a cost of around £600 just for new doors! We didn’t have that kind of money to splash out so decided we’d have to find a way to do it ourselves. Queue our favourite thing… spray paint!
This time was a little different, and we didn’t use a standard can of spray paint. Our kitchen cupboards are in fact sprayed “Mercedes White”. No, that isn’t a fancy name – we have just sprayed our doors with car paint! We haven’t lost the plot completely here – Simon has access to a proper well-ventilated spray booth, and as a paint sprayer, has the skills to do a pretty awesome job! I’m really pleased to be able to share this renovation, so much so that you’ll even get to see an in progress shot of our very, very messy cupboards (I’ll lie and say we tidied them after).
