Hand Painted Shabby Chic Kitchen

Hand Painted Shabby Chic Kitchen – Ripon, North Yorkshire For this hand painted kitchen the client wanted the units to end up looking aged and antiqued – that real ‘shabby chic’ country kitchen look.

Hand Painted Kitchen Refurbishment – Harrogate This small but perfectly formed oak kitchen was a lovely project to do and quite the painty transformation!

I explained that a quality hand painted finish was the perfect solution and was guaranteed to make it feel lighter, brighter and look much more contemporary. After an initial consultation and colour test the colour...
