First of all, Thank you to everyone who has given me so much help and advice and so enabled me to do what I think is a good job on my first kitchen painting job.
I hope it is OK to mention Tony Hiscocks of Corona Brush fame for firstly letting me have a couple of the wonderful Corona brushes to try out but also for getting a few more to me in a rush when a major decorators merchants had failed to get me some despite over 2 weeks notice (and I am still waiting to hear from them !)
I spent a long time reading and learning, but you cannot predict some problems…
The weather meant that my vehicle was snowed in for the first few days - not good when you discover that the Mythic paint that was specially ordered in for me was tinted in a close-but-not-close-enough colour. When I finally could get out the shop that mixed it were very good at sorting out the problem for me and spent almost 2 hours mixing several different colours until a perfect match had been made, but as more Mythic was going to take 4-5 days to get in I had to go with Farrow and Ball Estate Eggshell.
The kitchen had been painted in the past, but clearly the attention to detail was lacking with runs, serious brushmarks and lots of this sort of thing -
