When Merilyn Elson was tired of her thermo foil coating peeling off her kitchen cupboards, she called around to get a quote for getting her cupboard doors repainted. That’s when Dianella Polishing came on the scene.

A whole new look pulled off with a simple re-paint

Our Kitchen Renovation Expert, Trevor Skeels went out to meet with Merilyn and her husband at their Trigg beach house. The lovely couple were concerned they’d have to pay for a whole new kitchen, when they showed Trevor the problem. Their kitchen was well appointed and besides the vinyl peeling from the doors, it was in great condition.

Trevor advised the couple to leave the structure of the kitchen untouched. The kitchen was nicely designed, offered plenty of cupboard space and a great layout. Instead of a full kitchen makeover, our consultant pulled off a whole new
