Dishwasher gets a Rust-Oleum makeover
Here's a reader project that shows you how easy it is to use Rust-Oleum spray paint to give appliances a makeover.
Lauren need to update her dishwasher to match the new kitchen decor.
Not wanting to replace the dishwasher, she decided to use Rust-Oleum spray paint to transform her dishwasher from eighties dated to twenty-first century style.
1. After giving the dishwasher a good clean on the outside, Lauren used masking tape to cover what didn't need to be sprayed. It's also a good idea to organise yourself to do any spraying outdoors, as Rust-Oleum is not your average spray paint and can easily mess on surrounding surfaces. Leave the primer to dry completely.
2. The front, sides and top of the dishwasher were then sprayed with Rust-Oleum metallic silver spray. Follow the instructions on the tin and only apply light, even coats over the surface. It's far better to have to apply more than one coat than try to cover everything in one go and then have to live with paint runs.
3. Lauren applied Gordon's Wonder Cover - Metallic Silver. This is a self-adhesive vinyl that is ideal for finishing off. If you battle to find this product at your local Builders Warehouse, get in touch with the manufacturer directly. To finish off, Lauren then applied a self-adhesive rope decal to disguise the joins, as the Wonder Cover is only 450mm wide.
