Am currently off with my arm set straight in a plastercast and my mind is whizzing with ideas! Thankfully still have dominant hand to communicate with.
We have a sort shabbyish solid wooden kitchen that I guess may have seen a coat of wax a while ago from the previous owners. I want to achieve that lovely (posh) creamy hand painted look. I also want a company to re enamel the Aga to cream too (but that'll be another post) oh and have wooden worktops and change the wall tiles...
Has anyone painted a wooden kitchen themselves and what did you use?
there's a company called Liberon based in Lydd Kent - who make a product to clean the wax off and get it ready for painting - I think it's called Libnet ?! can't remember ?! but worth googling them or ringing for a chat ! they really know their stuff !! sounds an exciting project ! have fun with it !!! don't over do it if you are supposed to be resting though !!! :-)
I wondered about Annie Sloan too. I have previously made my own chalk paint on some (a lot of!) old furniture for the spare room. It seems durable enough but I guess it's not heavily used. Might have to use the real thing (£££ )
There's a multisurface paint from Bedec which covers all sorts of surfaces. They will send out colour samples and give advice over the phone. I've not used it yet but liked the look of the satin finish sample they sent me (I'm looking to paint uPVC and an orange shed). It is stocked in our local builders merchants but not the DIY stores.
