DIY Tales: Painting an Appliance

By DIO Home Improvements on Oct 17, 2013

My refrigerator and stove hood had started yellowing recently. I didn't understand why since the dishwasher and stove were still bright white and only one year newer then the refrigerator. Aside from the yellowing color, both appliances still worked fine. The refrigerator is only a few years old, I wasn't about to replace a perfectly working appliance just because of the color. I decided I would give painting it a try! I was nervous, I wasn't sure if the finish would look like it had been painted. I wasn't sure if it would feel any different to the touch.
