Bright and white kitchen
Its astonishing what a difference a fresh coat of paint can make, and a makeover in white will make you see your kitchen in a whole new light. Wash all your walls down thoroughly with sugar soap. Go over each wall and fill any chips, holes or gaps with filler. When dry, sand the filler smooth and also sand over any other bumps on the walls. Wash walls with sugar soap again and leave it to dry. Paint around the edges of the woodwork, ceiling and corners of the room first with a brush, then fill in the larger areas with a paintpad or roller. Leave it dry and then apply a second coat.
You will need: sugar, sponge, wall filler, sandpaper, white emulsion, paintbrush, paintpad or roller, paint tray.
Time needed: Half a day plus drying
