Recently, Master Painter Kevin Mapstone was commissioned to paint a Mark Wilkinson kitchen in Norway.
During the project his client asked for ideas to design a scheme for painting the wooden floor throughout the kitchen area.
Kevin called us and his idea was for a checker board effect in a paint that would be easy to apply and also be very durable.
The product selected was Rust-Oleum 7100 solvent borne floor paint. It is very durable and comes in a gloss finish to any colour. Rust-Oleum 7100 can be applied to wood, concrete and metal surfaces.
Back on site, the surface preparation was very straight forward. The timber was sanded, nail holes sealed and holes filled. The first coat was thinned to act as a primer then followed with one full coat.
For the kitchen cabinets, Kevin chose Feelings Furniture Paint from Tikkurila. It is a very hard wearing, chip resistant and washable satin matt finish and again, it was supplied in the exact match to the colour the client wanted.
The end result – very dramatic and simply stunning.
