Be honest, did you know you can paint your white goods? Well, you can! Check out this freezer that Facebook Group member Amanda Hope painted and embellished with a floral transfer! Doesn’t it look fab!? Amanda wanted her essential but out of character modern silver freezer to fit in better with her country style kitchen and pale cream range oven.
This technique does take some prep and extra care to ensure a flawless finish. Amanda thoroughly cleaned and degreased with Grime Cutter
, then scuff sanded and rinsed the surface again. Next, she masked off all the rubber seals and applied 2 coats of Fusion Ultra Grip
, waiting 12 hours between coats. Then she painted it in 3 coats of Fusion Mineral Paint in Plaster
, again waiting 12 hours between coats. The Re Design by Prima Spring Meadow Life
transfers were then applied and finally, Amanda applied 2 coats of a satin wax finish.
The process may be long but it's well worth it for such a gorgeous result! Amanda says people are surprised when they find out you can paint fridges and freezers. She wishes she had done it sooner as it looks so much better and in keeping with the kitchen now. She credits Laura Downes (member AND moderator of the Facebook Group) with giving her advice on the process. Amazing job Amanda and very inspiring! What appliances do you have that look out of place? Could this technique be the answer?
