This small but gorgeous kitchen by Miles Redd was featured in the July House Beautiful. Rather than rip out the existing laminate kitchen cabinets, Miles simply had them painted in Bamboo Leaf by Fine Paints of Europe. Their Hollandlac Brilliant is a perfect paint for this type of use. It is an ultra durable marine grade paint that will give you a very high gloss enamel finish. This green is a wonderful choice. Other ideas for a Chinoiserie lacquer look include red, yellow, or black. Lacquer has been used in China and Japan since 7000 BC for its beautiful and durable finish. Fines Paints of Europe does an incredible job of creating this lacquer look. This idea is elegant, green in every sense of the word as you are upcycling your existing cabinets, and budget friendly.
