I absolutely hated the timber look laminate and green tiled splash back in our house.
so using a few cans of the white knight renew, the hardwood utility panels and white subway tiles I now have a bright, fresh new kitchen.
Thanks for joining this discussion @lisaaa and welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community.
Have you got an idea of the colour scheme you're going to go with?
Thanks for tagging. Need to replace a dark purple with black . It’s a laminate from around 12 years ago - good condition - fairly similar layout to this project .
I painted them while they were still hanging as I just don’t have the space to paint them while off.
one coat of primer and 2 coats of the top coat.
the paint recommends using a 4mm microfibre roller so that’s what I used, plus a brush for cutting in.
Thanks so much for that detail - looks like you did a great job
I trust @NikkiMaree has answered your question about their spectacular project.
A tip with your coats, apply them and then do not roll back over the surface trying to smooth them out. The paint will self-level, and there is no need to touch it again after applying. The biggest mistake people make is to re-roll an area once the paint has begun to tack up. Instead of flattening it, the semi-dried paint gets picked up into peaks by the roller and creates a rough texture. If you ever see someone remark that their benchtop is rough after painting it, this is likely the cause. The same applies to cabinetry.
We look forward to following along with your project. Remember to take lots of pictures and reach out if you need assistance.
@MitchellMc @Hi,If mistakes have done, how to save ? Sand it? Repaint ?Thank you very much !
Thanks for contributing to this discussion @vica.
@MitchellMc will be more than happy to help with your question when he's back on the site on Friday. In the meantime, could you share more details about your project? Are you painting kitchen cupboards? It would be great to see a photo and understand what you're working with so that @MitchellMc and the rest of our community can offer the best advice for your situation.
wow looks great, how did you apply it on, did you need any preprep.
I do see some tips above, I painted mine in the past, but they dont look that great.
