Kitchen Renovation Winchester
I received a call from a lady who had just seen her friends kitchen, of which I had the pleasure of transforming six months earlier.
She wanted to know if I could work my magic on her kitchen as it was showing signs of wear in a few places, so I arranged a time and date to fit in with her very busy schedule, then headed off to a very sunny and warm Winchester.
I already knew the size and layout of the kitchen as her friends had an identical one so the meeting was more about any extra work and colours.
The kitchen was a foil wrap and overall in very good condition but just needed updating, plus a few minor repairs and a change of use to two areas.
The customer had two colours in mind already and told me that she liked "wacky colours" so after going through my colour swatches two colours were chosen.
I picked up a key, as she was going away while the work was to do done to give me plenty of space and the whole kitchen area to myself.
The first job was to remove two wire wine racks, I then cut, drilled and fitted two wooden shelves in each unit to replace the racks.
I had to remove 3 drawer fronts and re-drill them as over the years then had dropped and then I was ready for the fun part.
All doors and drawers were removed, numbered and placed onto my Erecta-Rack system which allows easy painting of them and gives better access to the rest of the kitchen units.
All areas were washed down and then lightly sanded, being very careful not to rub through the foil, then after a good clean up everything got a coat of Stix, which is a water-based adhesion primer.
Once fully dry the final two coats of Scuff-X eggshell paint was applied, this was left to harden off overnight as before refitting I had to replace the hinges with some new Blum soft-closing hinges.
The last job was to fit some new copper handles and then one final clean up and the job was finished.
