DIY: refrigerator from off white to stainless steel!

DIY Stainless steel refrigerator:  I was searching the internet and some how came upon this product called faux stainless steel.  It was a roll of pvc film that looks exactly like stainless steel.  I’ve been wanting a new fridge, so I figured I would give this a shot before I spent the money on a whole new fridge.  Besides my fridge still works perfectly.  It was worth the 75 dollars(including the film and spray paint) instead of the price of a new fridge.

I originally wanted sweet Caroline but it came out darker than I thought it would. Also, it helps to do a large sample area because once I got the color on a larger area it was lighter than I thought so the Sweet Caroline probably would have been fine, but I’m happy with the Stolen Moments! Before After with the Benjamin Moore […]
