Painting Appliances

I'm renovating my kitchen on a tight budget. I'm tired of the ugly old looking fridge that came with the house. I was going to go and buy all new appliances for my kitchen. Of course, I changed my mind. I'm glad I did.

I opted to spray paint my fridge. It looks amazing! People can't tell the difference. Which I love. FYI If you're able to spray paint outside please do. I had black paint all over my house. It took me 2.5 hrs to clean it all up. So, I got a new fridge for under $15. By the way, I used 2 cans of spray.

Yes there's a special paint. You have to use "Epoxy paint"; (brand: Rust Oleum from Lowe's). (04/23/2009)

I also painted my refrigerator out of necessity. My vinyl coated white fridge was showing rust spots. I spray painted it with the new Rustoleum product that is good for everything. I shielded the rest of the kitchen with polyethylene so there was not too much overspray. I did this in December and it still looks great. This saved the cost of buying a new fridge for a couple of years, I hope! (04/25/2009)

Our daughter painted the fridge and dishwasher, using melamine paint. It looks really nice, saved cost of replacement. (04/25/2009)

I have also covered a frig with wall paper. Get a heavy weight that is pre-pasted, nothing flocked or real fancy as far as pattern matching. (05/01/2009)
