DIY July

This project is in collaboration with Britsh Paints Australia

 

My laundry & cabinets desperately needed a makeover

I used sugar soap to give the cabinets a deep clean.

Then I sanded to remove shine & then I applied

PRECISION  Maximum Strength Adhesion Primer. ( x2)

Be sure to ask for professional advise when deciding what primer best suits your project .

 

Then I decided on my paint , I chose H2O Enamel Semi Gloss in the colour SECLUDED AVENUE

Wear & Tear Fighter

British Paints H2O Enamel Semi Gloss is a waterbased enamel, designed for use on interior and exterior doors, windows and timber trim surfaces. H2O Enamel is a great alternative to traditional oil based enamels, with all the time saving and convenient benefits of a water based paint

 

Benefits

Non Yellowing

Easy water wash up

Low odour

Fast drying Inside & Outside

 

I applied 2 coats of SECLUDED AVENUE .

Once dried I put the cabinets  back together & transformed my laundry room.

Re: Painting cabinets and laundry room makeover

What a remarkable transformation, @LorenaDIYS. Painting the cabinetry certainly opens up many more styling opportunities than working with the typically stark white. 

 

That Dulux Precision Maximum Adhesion primer certainly works a treat. It's one of my new favourite products, which I've used on several different projects.

 

Lovely work.

Hi @LorenaDIYS

 

What an amazing finish you have on those cabinets. Would you mind telling us how long you've had the cabinets? I'm just curious how the new finish is holding up to everyday use.
