We bought a chest freezer from our good friend last summer. I had plans to stick it in our garage once the overhaul was done. There was only one problem with the freezer — it was white. Since our garage has now been painted red, black, and silver, I thought this freezer would stand out too much.
I had heard of people spray painting their appliances, but never knew if it worked well or not. Only one way to find out!
I took the freezer outside and started the process by securely taping off all of the vents and electrical parts. Since the freezer lid had a tight seal on it, I didn’t find it necessary to tape the lid.
Then I applied about two can’s worth of appliance spray paint in light coats all around the freezer. It covered nicely and dried in less than a half hour.
Easy enough, right?
You honestly can’t tell that it’s been spray painted. I’m not sure if I’d have the guts to use the same spray paint on a stove or refrigerator, but I’d imagine it’d work just as well!
Proof that you really can spray paint anything. 🙂
