Painting tips: Tired kitchen cupboards brought to life

Adam from Adam's Painting

With the right paint and a few careful moves with the paintbrush, it's possible to transform those tired cupboards to look almost new. Last week, a lovely family in Fairfield were wanting to do up their place ready for sale. They were expecting to employ a builder to completely rebuild their kitchen, until I explained they only needed to pay the painter at a fraction of the cost! These cupboards (see 'before and after' pics below) were painted white to freshen up their kitchen. My clients were thrilled! If you'd like to see how I can transform your kitchen cupboards, or any rooms in your house or business, please let me know! (See previous posts for further tips)

I for one will miss the Recycle Shop at the Hamilton Tip.
HCC in its "wisdom" has forced the closure by selling the contract. All recyclables will now be thrown/bulldozed into the refuse. (I was told).
What the hell are they thinking?
No longer will this facility be a place to find those bits and pieces for our craft projects, at decent prices.
Admittedly, I have been away from Hamilton so only found out yesterday. I have no idea if there was any consultation or what thought put into this closure.
The business that recycled these re-usable products was not running at a loss (I've been told), very fair pricing, great finds and friendly/helpful staff.
People losing their jobs?
I've also been told Habitat for Humanity will take over the site in the next few months.
I'm all for recycling of anything useful but doubt I'll frequent their store.
Their prices are ridiculous, as are the prices for the junk sold by the Sallies.
Neither stores are on my list to visit any longer.
