Painted Ikea Kitchen Restoration, York – Blog by Lee Simone For this kitchen painting project I travelled to the lovely city of York. The project was undertaken whilst the clients were, at least in part, on holiday,  which allowed for the minimum of disruption and gave them the joy of coming home to a hassle free brand ‘new’  kitchen 🙂 The kitchen itself wasn’t in the best condition but having had various kitchen design companies taking a look the layout...

Oak Kitchen Cupboard Restoration – Nr. Thirsk, North Yorkshire – Blog by Lee Simone This hand painted kitchen restoration is one that I am very proud of and one that brought this beautifully made ‘pippy’ oak kitchen back to the 21st century.

They were in the throws of renovating their old lakeside house and were doing everything as sympathetically as possible, maintaining much of the original features and having...

There’s a ‘New’ Glaze in Town

There’s a ‘New’ Glaze in Town – For those of you have that have done any specialist paint effects I’m sure at some point you used the original ‘Transparent Oil Glaze’ from Ratcliffes.
