Kitchens are often dominated by their fitted cupboards and work surfaces. And that’s not surprising given the work that goes on there. But free-standing furniture remains a feature of many kitchens despite the trend for the fitted look. Kitchen tables and chairs are always favourites for the shabby chic painting service. But larger dressers and sideboards, in bigger kitchens are also very popular.
Pine tables and dressers make up the majority of these items of furniture—complemented with the occasional oak sideboard or bookcase.
The hard-working nature of kitchen furniture demands several coats of paint and a good application of a wax overlay to finish off the shabby chic painting service. After that the furniture will withstand just about everything.
What Shabby Chic Paint Colour to Choose for Kitchens?
But equally popular are shades of blue and green–matching in with kitchen cabinets, floors or wall colours. Ever popular shaker-style kitchens often include a shabby-chic table or dresser.
We are increasingly asked to mix a painted finish with that of a raw or waxed wood effect. That works well and often complements wooden (maple or oak) work tops in the kitchen.
You can expect to give your old kitchen furniture a real colour boost when you choose to give them the shabby chic treatment.
Shabby Chic Painting Service Key Steps
To achieve the look we remove all the varnish and wax from your furniture with power sanders and by hand.
We then apply primer and undercoat paint.
Finally, and only when requested, we shabby the furniture with sandpaper and then give it two coats of wax.
