Furniture Medic Updates Kitchen Island with Fresh Paint Job

If you have a piece of furniture that has been in your home for years, it is common to decide that you want to make a change.  Homeowners may get bored with the same furniture over a number of years and eventually wish for a new look.  The obvious option would be to replace your furniture with brand new furniture with a fresh look and design, but this option is quite pricey.  Another option you should consider is changing the appearance of your current furniture.  Furniture restoration experts at Furniture Medic by Mastercare Experts can bring a fresh, new look to your old furniture by stripping your wood furniture and applying a new finish, stain, or paint job.

Repainting a Kitchen Island

At Furniture Medic by MasterCare Experts, we recently had a customer who wanted to update the look of her kitchen.  She looked around online for different kitchen makeover ideas and decided that she just wanted to change her kitchen island.  The kitchen island originally matched the rest of the cabinets in her kitchen with a light finish that showed the natural wood and black handles for the drawers.  The customer decided to “go bold” and make the island a statement piece instead of a “blend in” piece.  She came to Furniture Medic by MasterCare Experts to have our professionals strip down the kitchen island and repaint it with a new color that would make it stand out.

Expert Furniture Refinishing and Painting

By having our experts strip down and paint her current kitchen island, our customer was able to update the look of her kitchen without the need to replace anything.  The doors and drawers of the kitchen island were brought to our facility to be painted in the Furniture Medic spray booth.  Our experts cleaned, stripped, and sanded the doors and drawers and painted them with the customer’s choice of color.  The stripping and painting process in our spray booth gave the doors a furniture finish quality.

In order to paint the island itself, the job needed to be done onsite in the customer’s home.  Our craftsmen came to the customer’s home and painted the island in her kitchen with a special technique that produced a virtually streak-free finish.  When the job was complete, the island was no longer just an island, the island was now a fine piece of furniture.  The after picture shows the newly painted island with its new dark color and light-colored handles as a bold new centerpiece for the customer’s kitchen.
