Hand Painted Kitchen Budapest Hungary: Our commission was to hand paint a kitchen in Budapest. As we were flying we organised a kit bag, packing just the essentials as weight is always an issue. In situations like this, we inform the client that they will need to supply a vacuum cleaner and steps to aid our work. Hand Painted Kitchen Budapest Hungary
Budapest is the capital and the largest city in Hungary. Upon landing, we headed to the car hire to pick up a car – this was one city were it was a bonus to have sat nav as we couldn’t read any of the road signs. Hand Painted Kitchen Budapest Hungary
First day on site
After fighting our way through the rush hour traffic, we headed up towards the hills. Arriving at this fantastic property which had been designed by a famous Hungarian architect, the first thing we noticed were the breath taking views where you looked down over Budapest.
Preparation of a bespoke kitchen furniture
As with all kitchens, we started off by stripping down the furniture from the units, taping up the interiors and protecting work surfaces and floor areas with 1000 grade lining paper. We label all drawers and components that we remove so that it makes it a lot easier when replacing everything. Hand Painted Kitchen Budapest Hungary
Using two pack filler, we proceeded to fill up all large holes and dents. We gunned in all joints using acrylic caulk and a small filling knife which kept the profile. Using our Festool sander, we proceeded to sand smooth all areas to be painted and after vacuuming the units, we used a tack rag to remove any last traces of dust, leaving every surface ready for painting.

We found Budapest to be a beautiful city but one of the highlights for us was this view every morning from the hotel’s breakfast room. Hand Painted Kitchen Budapest Hungary
Painting kitchen furniture
We applied the first coat of Feelings Primer Undercoat furniture paint by Tikkurila which was supplied by Holman Paints. Once this had dried, we used a halogen lamp to highlight any defects which were filled using ready patch fine surface filler. We used sanding pads to nib down the filler and paint work and after a good vacuum and clean with a tack rag, we began applying the top coats. Hand Painted Kitchen Budapest Hungary
Producing a virtually brush free finish
For the top coats, we used Feelings Furniture Paint which is exceptionally tough with a semi matte finish. After stirring the paint thoroughly, we would normally dilute by 5% with water and add a little Fair Decor. Using a damp cloth, we wiped the area to be painted and applied the paint using a synthetic brush and flock roller from My Paint Brush after which, we lay off with the tips of the brush.
Once everything was dry, we removed all the protection, replaced the kitchen furniture and thoroughly cleaned throughout.
