Painted laminate kitchen cupboards - before and after

Painted laminate kitchen cupboards - before and after

Just thought I'd share before and after photos of my original 1995 kitchen after painting.

 

I painted the cupboard doors and panels with White Knight Tile and Laminate Paint, using a small roller generally and a paint brush for corners, and after cleaning with White Knight cleaner.  After doing a 'trial and learn' on the inside of one cupboard door, painting was easy.

 

I removed all the doors and hardware and painted the visible panels in situ, and did two coats.  It took 4 x half days altogether.  An easy and cheap job which I would recommend to anyone capable of removing/replacing hinges and door handles.

Hi @Ari,

 

That looks fantastic! You must be very happy with your efforts as they have totally transformed that kitchen.

 

I trust our members will appreciate your feedback on the products and your encouragement.

Well done.

Re: Painted laminate kitchen cupboards - Before and After

Thanks @MitchellMc !   It's amazing what colour can do.  Such an easy job, I'd recommend anyone with time and patience to do the same for a cheap update (around $250 all up.)

 

Those pics are actually from three years ago and I'm now planning to knock out and rebuild. Will hopefully remove the wall behind the fridge space (the middle door is a hot water cupboard and the door on the left is to an awkward L shaped laundry) - and create a laundry cupboard facing the kitchen, behind the hot water cupboard.

 

Before and after pics one day ...
