not quite a Tah Dah

Remember this?




Well no big reveal yet but work has finally started. Mr. H has worked his magic, scraping and flattening the old paint ready for the fun part and after much deliberation, paint has finally been chosen and purchased.



I normally go for an eggshell finish (I know chalky finish is a big favourite at the moment but I'm not a fan, sorry) but over the last couple of years I have fallen back in love with gloss... not for everything you understand but certain things and especially in the kitchen.
This is a cupboard that I rescued from a skip a few years back that has had the F&B full oil gloss treatment.




I love Farrow and Ball emulsion, house White being my favourite colour for walls
but I have to say I'm not a big fan of their water based gloss, I much preferred the oil full gloss not very eco friendly I know but it's as tough as old boots.
So Iv'e opted for good old Dulux this time.
This will be for the cupboard doors with white for the framework.
I'm also going to give my tea trolley a much needed makeover while I'm at it, also giving it a coat or two of the yellow.

This is to line the shelves with, I thought it would be a perfect match for the woods ware that will be living here when it's eventually finished.





Oh well off now painting to be done!

  1. Can't wait to see it finished, I've just been given a really sweet glazed wall cupboard. It's not very big, more like a shadow box, just deciding what to do.....:) x

  6. That looks like a lovely project - I haven't painted anything in ages!!!xxxx
    PS The walk from Hollingwood Hub cafe into Chesterfield itself is very lovely - I'd recommend that for a nice (flat) walk and you can have a boat trip at the other end too - its featured somewhere on my blog last year. xxx
