The work varied from spraying interior walls and ceilings to finishing detailed moulding and cabinetry by hand brushing or by a HVLP sprayer. This laid the groundworks for my interest in cabinet finishing and so Boston was where it all began for me. I spent over 5 and a half years in Boston doing this type of work and when I look now back I absolutely loved the States and the job. Eventually, in 2003, I decided to come home to Ireland and worked for a few different companies travelling all over the West of Ireland. I worked on projects from Shannon airport to Government buildings. I also worked in many housing estates however it lacked that satisfying feeling that you get when working and transforming a space in a private house.
Eventually, I set up my own business after a few years. At the beginning I covered all aspects of the painting trade including interiors, exteriors wallpapering and painting kitchen cabinets. For years my true love was in making old wooden kitchens look new like new again. It was similar to the majority of the work and experience I had gained in Boston. I realised that I had found my passion once again even if it was on a much smaller scale. I decided to take the plunge and specialise solely in painting kitchen cabinets and furniture. I had a workshop built near my home with a preparation area, a drying room and a spraying room with an extraction fan so whether they were getting hand painted or sprayed I could carry out the work efficiently and professionally. To date, I have endless kitchens completed and many happy customers who are delighted with their new kitchen make-overs.
Being a professional kitchen painter brings me all over the West of Ireland and every other week a different kitchen project is completed. I get great job satisfaction from bringing tired old kitchens back to life
