Painting furniture ideas are all over social media. However, chairs and tables aren't the only things that deliver style and color. You can also paint your refrigerator. Regardless if you use spray paint or a roller, learning how to paint a refrigerator is easier than you'd think.
Picking the Right Paint
Depending on the condition of your fridge, you may need just a bottle of paint for touch-ups or a whole can of paint for total coverage. For long-lasting results, pick a paint that's right for your job.
For covering nicks or discolorations, appliance epoxy paint is excellent. The paint application comes in spray form or with a brush. Standard appliance colors are available.
You might want to paint your refrigerator another color besides the standard white or black. Consider using standard spray paint, followed by a layer of clear enamel gloss protective spray.
Getting Ready to Paint Your Fridge
Place a drop cloth under the refrigerator. Painting is a messy job, and you don't want to ruin your flooring. Laying down a drop cloth protects against drips and stains. You can buy drop cloths at any home painting or hardware store. If you don't have a drop cloth, use an old sheet, tarp, or trash bag.
Be careful, trying to lift your fridge. Get someone to help you, or lift one corner at a time, placing the cloth beneath it.
Clean the outside of the fridge. Any dust or grime left on the exterior will mess up the paint and stop it from going on smoothly. Use a microfiber towel or damp cloth to wipe the top, front, and sides.
Allow the refrigerator to air dry. Don't wipe it with a towel since it leaves lint behind. To clean out the nooks and crannies, removing any food particles, use an air compressor.
Refrigerator Painting Time
Now, you're ready to paint your refrigerator. A fresh coat of paint brightens any surface. So, a layer of stainless steel or a brush of bold color completely transforms your refrigerator. Painting your refrigerator covers up any scratches, updates the finish, as well as extend its lifespan without breaking the bank.
