These 2 cupboards were bought 3 generations back and given fresh paint in the 70s. Now it was time for another refreshment. I was asked to try to match the colour of the tiles in the bathroom - marine blue and seaweed green both with a cream colour marble effect.
After sanding and priming I painted the inside and out, polished the hardware and varnished with my favourite Danish floor varnish (Bondex by Dyrup) which creates a hard and water resistant surface. All primer, paints and varnish that I use are water based i.e. easier on my nose and head, easier to clean sponges, rollers etc and better for the environment.
I ended up painting 3 different versions before settling on this marine blue with cream and green colour veins, the inside is golden mustard with cream veins.
See pictures below, of before and after and close up of the tiles. I will not add captions to the pictures as it seems to mess up the images when viewed on a smart phone.
