Re: Kitchen refresh using White Knight Renew

Hi @vica,

 

I sincerely apologise for not getting back to you. How are you going with your project? Have you made a mistake and are trying to correct it, or are you looking to prevent a mistake?

 

If you made a mistake, could you please take a picture of it and I'd be happy to advise on how to fix it.

Hi @Cole_73,

 

Let me mention @NikkiMaree to see if they can give us a rundown on their preparation of the surfaces.

 

What type of roller did you use on your past project? I notice that @NikkiMaree used a 4mm nap microfibre roller, and this would also be my recommendation as it will give you a very smooth finish.

 

Are you looking to paint another kitchen? If so, it would be great if you'd like to share it with us, as I trust our members will be keen to follow along with the process.

It's always a pleasure to assist you, @vica.

 

You can still paint now, but you'll find the paint will take longer to dry. If you'd like to complete the project over a weekend, you might need to wait for it to warm up a bit. Please let us know when it comes time to paint as we would be more than happy to provide advice on your project.

Re: Kitchen refresh using White Knight Renew

Hey @Cole_73 I really just followed all of the instructions on the can. 

basically a really good clean with the white knight tile and laminate cleaner and a good rinse with water. 
then 1 coat of the primer. 

with the top coat laying off all in the one direction. Light sand in between coats as well.

Wow, what a great job, congratulations!

 

I'm also a fan of White Knight laminate paint. I painted my ugly light grey kitchen cupboards white around three years ago and the paint is still looking great save for a couple of small chips. Highly recommend this paint, it wipes clean well.

 

I had planned to rip out and replace the whole kitchen this year but priorities have changed and after seeing your post I'm now thinking painting the tiles and replacing the benchtops and sinks might be the way to go instead.

 

Thank you!

Great work @NikkiMaree What colour white did you use? It looks glossy, is it gloss or satin?

Looks unreal! Well done! May I ask what the benchtops are that you have used? Looking for something similar for our kitchen
