I am moving in with DBF in June and we are in the process of overhauling his apartment to get ready. We painted his kitchen cabinets white and the walls bright, citrus green. Now we have to do something about the yucky, almond-colored stove and refrigerator. I saw that Rust-Oleum makes spray on appliance epoxy paint. We would either do white or stainless steel. Has anybody tried this? How did it work out?
You know we were going to do what is called reglazing our bath tub and I heard you can do something similar with your fridge and stove, to reglaze is kinda pricey but I'll ask my DB since he works at home depot what would be good for you to use, I'll get back to yah on this one!
I had friends who painted their pink stove and oven to white and turned out great. And my parents did their bathtubs that also turned out well too. I dont know about stainless that must be some new technology. Both of these were done years ago.
Haven't done an appliance, but I have used Rustoleum paints on a number of surfaces andhave every confidence in their products. Make sure you clean the surface well to get all the dirt, grease, etc. off. Prime it with the recommended primer, and spray in light coats. Better to have another coat to go than drips.
Also, in chosing white or stainless, consider that any dings will show more with the stainless, in case that will bother you.
Beth brought up a good point about priming etc. The kits used were not spray from a can but specific kits that had primer and I think 2 other steps. I would check these out too
My very handy brother-in-law redid the toilet and bathtub in his house. It worked great, but he tried the spray epoxy first and it wasn't too nifty. He ended up using a brush-on. The spray cans didn't have but a couple of squirts in them. I'm not sure if it was a fluke, or it the spray cans are all problematic.
Another thought -- if you use a spray, look for those handles that let you squeeze rather than push down with your finger. Anything that uses a whole can of paint or more deserves them. I have found them at Home Depot, Walmart -- most any pplace that sells spray paint should have them.
I tried the spray on appliance paint last night. It worked pretty well, but it still needs one or two more coats. I primed it first. I would like to try the brush-on, but haven't been able to find it anywhere. The fumes from the spray were AWFUL!
