Creation of a 1950s style kitchen assortment

by | Mar 9, 2021 | Buffet, Kitchen and Bathroom Cabinets, shelf unit | 0 comments

The bright and colourful hues of the 1950s inspire me a lot. So for my shelving and sideboard set, I used the new Sage green colour by Colorantic and it had exactly the effect I desired. Below is what I used for the restoration, and I will also explain the steps.

colour Step 1 – Prepare the surface


First, the surfaces to be painted must be sanded with the sanding block (fine side). Although the Colorantic paint has high coverage, it’s better to be sure that it adheres to it’s full potential hence the light sanding. To remove all traces of dirt, use the cleaner and varnish remover to finalize the preparation.



Step 2 – Application of the colours


The beautiful Sage paint colour was applied to the cabinet, the shelf and all the accessories. The oval paint brush was used for the sideboard, and the Snow-White paint brush for angles and places that require precision. For the gorgeous vintage spice rack, the synthetic oval brush (which is super soft) applied paint to these small items very well. The colour Cotton Ball  was used to paint  the ends of the decorative cooking utensils. Two coats of paint were sufficient for all the furniture.



Phase 3 – Finishing the set


The Colorantic Antique Brown wax darkened the corners, edges, and angles, which now have a vintage feel and pair beautifully with Sage. The sanding block (rough side) softened the furniture and prepared the surface for the application of the Natural Beeswax. The European style paint brush helped greatly in its application. The location of this assortment of furniture will give a nostalgic look to your 1950s-style kitchen.
