  • 3 weeks of work...

    I had to do to renew my kitchen. I know you all like pictures so here they come.... another reason why I wasn't in my shop, but I think it was worth it! All I did was painting...painting and painting again to finish with painting!
    Oh...I also have some plans for the living room...
    Enjoy...old look1.jpg

            What a wonderful, bright look! It makes you feel good just to see it! And you did a terrific job with the painting--it really looks professional.

            I hope you make many wonderful things in your newly redecorated kitchen, to match the many wonderful things you make in your shop.

            Can't wait to see the living room.

                Yep, Frieke, I gots to agree - You did good! That is beautiful!!!! When I first met my wife (last century) she had a brown kitchen and we made it white like that . . . . I was beautiful. I image you are feeling the size different and the pleasant softness every time you walk in there. Good job!

                  You're right John, it feel like the kitchen is a lot bigger now, and not so dark anymore... I love to cook and spend time in the kitchen, now even more...should have done this ages ago!

                        Hey Tony glad you like it and believe me, it wasn't difficult, just the drying time was boring... I used for the cabinets satin paint from colors del mundo (Levis, Kenia light) and for the work space Kenia intensive(2 layers). Before that 2 layers of good primer, I always let them make in the paint store, precolored(the primer) so it gives a better result ad the price is the same as other primer. All on water base, except the tiles . For the tiles and workspace I used as primer a two component primer, and then an acryl satin paint but based on solvent. The colors was stone, as was the wall, but the tiles were more intensive ... hope this makes sence to you!
                        Now i'm working om my table, it's an old table in oak from a bakery, we cleaned it and now I want to whitewash it, meaning : I'll take the same paint from my cabinets and add water to it 1:1 whipe it on the wood and clean it back off so it'll leave just white in the nerves. Finish with varnish... that's work for the next few days cuz it has to dry between each layer...

                          WOW, Frieke, that wash for your table sounds great. I can picture it. It will look fantastic, with the wood grain & a little wash showing. Good idea. Your kitchen looks really great. I'll bet you do enjoy it more when you walk into the room. I like the brightness, rather than the dark, although I like the looks of the wood. But, we do what's best for us in the long run. You will really enjoy it, I'm sure. Have fun in your bright new kitchen. Now, the living room. Thanks for showing us.

                            You painted the counter top too? I thought everything was all brand new until I looked at the pics a second time. Such a great job!!! Beautiful! Love the colors.

                              My process is a bit different. Since I am using heat shrink bags when you seal the open end you trap a lot of air in them. When you start to heat the bag to shrink it you create a large bubble. I continue to heat the bag until it does pop a hole. I have been doing this for years. The shrink wrap...

                              None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

                              What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
                              The bags seem easier on the surface.
                              But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

                              Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

                              As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...
