6. Once the primer has dried, you can start adding colour. Using Dulux Quick Dry Eggshell in Raspberry Diva, and the same technique for the primer, paint the cabinet. Use a roller for large areas and a paintbrush for the corners, crevices and around the handles. Dulux Quick Dry Eggshell is perfect because it’s water-based so you can paint two coats in a single day (unlike solvent-based). Plus, it’s more durable and wipeable.
7. Leave the cabinet to dry for six hours, or overnight, then do a second coat.
8. Remove the masking tape before the paint is completely dry, as this is when the tape is more flexible and won’t pull off any paint. Position in your room and admire.
Steph’s insider tip: For a bolder project, extend the design from the cabinet onto the wall behind to create a seamless “colour drench” effect.
