Create Your Dream Kitchen kit

Have you thought it may be time for a new kitchen, but don't want to spend thousands (even tens of thousands!) of dollars on new cabinetry? 

If your cabinets are in reasonable condition and you can live with your current layout, painting your kitchen is a great way to completely update your space. Think light and airy from dark and dreary in just a few days!

Our Vintage Bird mineral paint requires minimal preparation compared to other acrylic or enamel paints.  Usually no pre-sanding, no sanding between coats or for the final coat like with chalk paint. It is the best paint option to provide you with a beautiful, silky smooth finish with minimal brush strokes that cures to a hard, moisture and scratch resistant finish. Our paint has excellent coverage and is deeply pigmented.  Our recommendation is 3 light coats for for most colours to achieve a more consistent, even and long lasting finish.

This kit contains just about everything you will need to paint your kitchen and allows for two colour choices if you like the current trend of different coloured top and bottom cabinets. It comes in 3 sizes for small through to large kitchen spaces.

You will receive:

-2 to 5 litres of paint, depending on your kitchen size, and the kit ordered.

-1 or 2 500ml bottles of Birds Special Bond (BSB)

- 1 Premium Cling On brush which is perfect to help minimise brush strokes and great for getting into fiddly places. 

- double sided sanding block for touch ups

- Either a satin protective polyurethane coat, or hemp finishing oil - enough for your project. You choose your finish option. 


We will then be in touch to confirm and notify you of dispatch date.

HOW MUCH PAINT WILL YOU NEED?

To decide if you have a small, medium or large kitchen to paint, use this formula:

Approx 125 ml of paint will provide two coats on one cabinet/one set of drawers (see photo above). 

Multiply the number of cabinets you have by 125. For example, If I have 20cabinets (including one full length pantry that is 90cm wide that I counted as 3 cabinets) This  means I will need approximately 2.5 litres of paint to cover the front and trim edges of all cabinets. If I want to paint the backs of the doors, I will need to add another 100ml per cabinet. For example, 125 + 100ml = 225 x 20 = 4.5 litres. I then need to include the cabinet ends that are exposed. If these are bench height, count as you did for cabinets. An average cabinet width is 50-60cm. If you have an island bench, or a full length end wall, double or triple the number according to depth and width.
