Open-plan Kitchen & Living Room, Old Schoolhouse, Dalston, E8
The kitchen units in this space needed sprucing up. I thoroughly washed down with Krud Kutter (de-greaser), sanded the surfaces and then painted, using Dulux Trade Acrylic Eggshell, applied with a small similated mohair roller for a very even finish. I used acrylic (water-based) paint as the client needed to be able to use the kitchen as soon as possible. Drying times are 4-6 hours, compared to 16-18 for oil based.
