Bright yellow cupboards.
The tenant had dropped a slow cooker onto the ceramic hot plates and smashed it. The problem was all the control knobs for the cook plate were on the oven, so we had to replace both.
Massive brass ring pulls and hinges. Really old dishwasher that doesn't work properly.
More frilly valances.
but it's not all bad - a lovely big pantry.
The bones of the kitchen were good. It's just the yellow and brass had to go. So I grabbed a tin of Dulux Aqua enamel in Whisper White and went to work. Here is the after.
I painted all the cupboards and hinges white. I used a metal primer spray on the hinges and Zinsser 123 Bulls Eye primer on the cupboards, followed by Dulux Whisper White in gloss enamel.
I replaced all the handles with black shell pulls.
I tried to leave as much of the timber features as I could but I had to paint out the trim on top of the pantry as there was just too detail to cut around.
The kitchen never had a splash back, so I bought these white subway tiles for 59cents each at Bunnings and had a tiler install them.
A new Omega stainless steel oven and ceramic cook top.
I pulled down the frilly valance. The window is bare but it looks onto a very private back patio area.
