Transform Your Home with Frenchic Series 1 - Kitchen

We know times are hard, so Neighbourhood Media & Frenchic Paint Australia are bringing you the most cost effective ways to refresh your home, without breaking the bank!

For Series 1, we focus on the hub of the home, the kitchen!

Keeley’s existing kitchen was installed when the house was first built, and was overdue a facelift! The units and doors were still in great condition and quotes to replace the kitchen came in at over $20,000 an expense which really wasn’t needed!

Keeley’s vision was to create an airy, elegant kitchen with hints of timber, Keeley and her husband, Brendan added new handles and it was instantly updated!

Durability was key, which is why Keeley chose Frenchic’s Al Fresco Inside Outside Range, which requires minimal preparation, no priming and no sealing (its all built in!) once cured is as hard as nails, and comes with a 2 year “satisfaction guarantee” The best part is, it has no odour, minimal VOC’s, and is safe to use around children (it even self levels!)

Keeley and her Husband, Brad set about preparing the kitchen, and gave the cupboards a good scrub clean with Sugar Soap, removed the handles and filled the holes, and as the units had a gloss finish they gave a light sand with very fine sandpaper, once washed down with water and dry, they set about painting the doors using the Frenchic Synthetic Oval Brush

Once the first coat had dried, they applied a further coat (no need to sand in between) and the final coat was applied to finish the doors off! They then drilled new holes for the hardware and added a gorgeous stone effect tile to the backsplash to really finish it off!
